Conergy has contracted to build a 830 kW solar power plant in Shinhidaka, Japan, for investor Fujicom Co. Ltd. As the general contractor, Conergy is responsible for the plant's design and will provide engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services.
The plant, which is scheduled to be completed in April, will incorporate 3,300 Conergy P-Series modules on Conergy SolarLinea mounting systems. It is expected to produce over 900 MWh of electricity per year.Â
Conergy has also opened a branch office in Tokyo to manage its business in Japan and has appointed Hideyuki Otaka as managing director of the new subsidiary. Prior to joining Conergy, Otaka developed solar projects for Sojitz Corp. as head of foreign business.
"Initially, we plan to focus on EPC for large-scale solar farms and industrial rooftop projects," Otaka says." Over the long term, we also want to enter the market for residential rooftops."
