‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member Trina Solar has started construction of a 29MW PV power plant in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, in collaboration with Thailand’s Banpu Power Public Company.

Trina Solar Japan Energy Co, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Trina Solar, is leading the development, engineering, procurement and management of the project, which is in Kurokawa District of northeastern Japan’s Miyagi Prefecture. 

The project is expected to be operational and grid connected in the summer of 2019, with electricity sold to regional utility Tohoku Electric Power Co.

Banpu Power was said to have started increasing its renewable power capacity as part of a strategic new business plan.

Trina Solar recently said that it had sold around 900MW of PV power plant projects in the first half of 2018.
