News from Suzhou, China, the leading Chinese PV module manufacturer Talesun Solar provided 21.6 MW high-efficiency PV modules to Japanese PV developer, Yamasa Co., for its latest solar PV project under construction in Hiroshima Prefecture, Takada, Anyun, Japan.
The project of Hiroshima occupied a land area of 107,536 meter square and with total investment of JPY 8.5 billion, which is about USD$76.2 million.
The PV modules used in this project are all from the BISTAR series among Talesun’s product lines. The high-efficiency panel is with as high as 410 W power for single piece. And with particular design of half-cut and multi-bus bars (MBB) technologies, the total module power is increased while hidden cracks and shadow-caused power loss are minimized. This will significantly increase the total power output of the project.
Talesun entered into the Japan market and explored for business of both module selling and solar PV plant since 2015. With two branches established in Tokyo and Fukuoka separately, Talesun’s local team provides sales, after-sales support and technical service closely to Japan customers. The annual module sales of Talesun in Japan market is about 100 MW and meanwhile about 200 MW solar PV plants are developed solely or with local partners.
For each solar PV project no matter Talesun is the developer or only module supplier, the company sends experienced service team and works closely with customers in the entire construction process. The service team provides detailed and professional suggestion and help to the project from location inspection, module selection to site construction.
Yamasa Co., is a famous Japanese company with over 150 years history. Originally from timber business, Yamasa later expanded to aircraft and ship leasing business. In 2013, Yamasa got involved in investment of photovoltaic power plant. The cumulated solar PV projects developed and operated by Yamasa so far has exceeded 650 MW.
Yamasa states about the cooperation with Talesun: “Choosing Talesun as partner of this project is a determination considering Talesun’s excellent module performance of Japan’s projects for past years, and also considering the product specifications and services provided by module supplier.”
The Hiroshima project is estimated to connect to grid in April, 2021.
