Chinese Powerway Renewable Energy and Japanese West Holding have partnered to construct a 2MW capacity installation in Japan to fill the nuclear gap. West Holding will provide the investment and Powerway will design and construct the plant using its PowerScrew foundations and mounting structure products.
“Japan is an island country and is situated in the earthquake bend that creates challenges for mounting structure engineers,” said Benson Wu, CEO of Powerway. “I am happy that PowerScrew is selected by West Holding to be the system for supporting solar panels in West Holding’s PV power plants. No doubt, our PowerScrew foundation, made by tough structural steel, galvanized to stand for over 40 years’ weathering and well tested by computer simulation to resist strong wind load and earthquake attack, is ideal to Japanese geologist situation. We are proud to be associated with West Holding, the top solar construction company in Japan.”
Powerway will be installing mounting structures for West Holding’s 80MW project pipeline of over 40 solar farms in Japan in 2012, valued at US$12 million.
