Solar solutions provider juwi has commissioned a 10.5 MW solar park in southern France and has connected a 1 MW rooftop PV plant in Kumamoto, Japan.
The 10.5 MW solar park in southern France near Bordeaux is juwi’s eleventh solar park in the country.
The Mios 2 project is an extension of the Mios 1 solar plant connected to the grid in 2011. The plants have a total capacity of 19 MW.
Juwi stated the solar park was realized independently of the French call-for-tender system for PV plants, a system launched by the French government in 2011.
Juwi has installed almost 50 MW of PV in France.
The juwi group is also responsible for the grid connection of a 1 MW rooftop PV plant in Kumamoto on the island of Kyushu in Japan. The plant, which consists of 4,088 solar modules was finished in four weeks, the company said.
The Kumamoto project was developed by the newly founded joint venture juwi Shizen Energy. The rooftop project is the second one of the JV. The first was an open field 1 MW PV plant installed end of 2012.
