Marubeni to Build 28.3MW Solar Power Station in Northern Japan

Marubeni Corp., a Japanese trading company that’s developing solar and wind power projects, will build a 28.3 megawatt solar power station in northern Japan.

The plant will be set up at a farmland damaged by the 2011 tsunami in Miyagi prefecture as part of reconstruction efforts, Tokyo-based Marubeni said in a statement today.

The station is expected to start running next April, according to the statement.
