SB Energy, a subsidiary of telecoms group Softbank, and conglomerate Mitsui are close to completing an 111MW PV project in northern Japan.
Both companies noted in a statement that the plant on Hokkaido Island would be activated on December 1. The joint project was initially announced in March 2013 and was originally set to commence operations earlier this year.
Developed on 166 hectares of land near the town of Abira, the installation is expected to generate enough energy to power around 30,000 homes.
