Gunkul Engineering taps Toshiba to provide EPC services for 33.5MW array in Japan


The Tokyo-based company will also supply its own 750kW power conditioners, as well as polycrystalline PV modules, according to an online statement.

Thailand’s Gunkul Engineering, which is financing the project, expects to start generating electricity by March 2019.

Upon completion, the 47-hectare site will generate roughly 45 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, or enough to provide power to about 10,000 homes.

Last summer, Bangkok-based Gunkul Engineering — which also develops wind farms — announced plans to invest in 78MW of solar capacity in Japan, with most of the projects expected to come online by the middle of 2017.
