Trina ships 57.1 MW of modules to Japanese solar project


China’s Trina Solar has delivered 57.1 MW of solar modules to a large-scales solar PV project in Japan, the company confirmed today.

The Tier-1 solar company has supplied the modules to Toyo Engineering Corporation, which is constructing the Furukawa Mega Solar Project – a large-scale PV installation located in Osaki City, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan.

The solar plant is being developed by Pacifico Energy Furukawa G.K. and is located on a former golf course. Its completion date is scheduled for the fourth quarter of the year, and Trina will aim to deliver all of its modules before the end of the third quarter.

Trina Solar Japan president Ms. Ye Chen said that the historic climate pact adopted at COP21 is set to further bolster the development of solar energy in Japan, and added that Trina is looking at further opportunities to expand into this solid market, which is likely to be the world’s third-largest in 2016.

"Looking ahead, we will continue to reinforce our deployment in the Japanese market while proactively devoting our efforts to prevent global warming through continuously delivering innovative solar products," Chen said.
