Solar Frontier K.K. Key Developments
Solar Frontier Starts Construction of Five Solar Projects in Kyushu, Japan
Jul 2 15
Solar Frontier K.K. has started construction of five solar projects totaling around 9MW in Kyushu, Japan. The projects are all high voltage and are managed by SF Solar Power, a joint investment company formed in 2013 with the Development Bank of Japan. They involve multiple landowners and are due to become operational from around November 2015, with their entire output being sold to Kyushu Electric Power. To date, SF Solar Power has implemented a variety of solar power projects throughout Japan, notably an 11.6 MW project at Kansai International Airport, one of the large solar projects at airports in Asia, and a 4.4 MW project at a plant belonging to the Suntory Group. These new projects in Kyushu are the next step in this series. Following the completion of the Kyushu projects, Solar Frontier's experienced project development team in Japan will continue to provide added-value services, including O&M (operation and management).
