Japans Solar Frontier, one of the world’s leading suppliers of thin-film technology, has supplied 86 MW of its CIS solar panels to a subsidiary of industrial engineering firm, the Chiyoda Corporation, as it seeks to expand its solar power capacity.
Chiyoda is embarking on the creation of 18 individual solar power projects spread evenly across Japan, and will perform the work of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) on each of their plants.
The Group has accrued vast experience of energy-related projects in more than 40 countries globally, with these latest Japanese projects their largest single commitment to solar power.
Solar Frontiers solar panels were chosen for their versatility and guaranteed high performance in Japans diverse regions. Strong low-light performance is required in the northern parts of the country, such as Hokkaido, while panels with tolerance to shadown and high heat efficiency will be installed in the southern locations, such as Kyushu.
