NCLAVE supplies fixed structure for 25 MW solar PV project in Japan

NCLAVE Japan KK has inked an agreement to deliver a solar mounting solution for a 25 MW solar project in the Japanese prefecture of Yamegata.

The scope of service provided by the company includes design, fabrication and installation of a fixed tilt mounting structure, which has been approved by the Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) of the Tohoku region.

NCLAVE is responsible for the mechanical completion of the project, which is scheduled to commence in August 2017 and expected to finish by May 2018.

“The design of the mounting system required three different designs within a heavy snow area location, with varying slopes and soil characteristics.  NCLAVE’s flexible design and in-house installation capabilities was a critical factor for the project stakeholders”, said Country Manager Alvaro Estelles.

Back in February, NCLAVE was formed through a merger of two Spanish firms, Grupo Clavijo and MFV Solar, which took place with the financial support of Q-Growth Fund. Now, the solar tracker manufacturer has more than 2 GW installed in 40 countries, of which 255 MW were in Europe and 378 were in South America at the end of 2016, and another 700 MW scheduled to be installed in the coming months.
