Sumitomo, Hitachi Zosen to Build 10 Megawatt Solar Farm in Osaka

Sumitomo Corp. (8053), Hitachi Zosen Corp. (7004) and five other companies will build a 10-megawatt solar power station in Osaka.

The plant, to be built at a waste landfill site, is expected to start operations in the fall of 2013, the companies said in a statement today.

Electricity generated from the facility will be sold to Kansai Electric Power Co. and will be enough to supply about 3,200 homes, according to the statement.

Jupiter Telecommunications Co., Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd., Daihen Corp., Rengo Co., and NTT Facilities Inc. will also participate in the project.
