Solar Frontier Completes Panel Production Plant in North Japan

Solar Frontier K.K., a unit of Japan’s Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K., completed the construction of a solar panel plant in northern Japan.

The 150-megawatt plant in Miyagi prefecture now moves into the ramp-up phase, Tokyo-based Solar Frontier said in a statement Tuesday.

Solar Frontier’s largest plant, which can produce 900 megawatts per year, is in the southwestern prefecture of Miyazaki. The company makes panels using copper, indium, gallium and selenium, known as CIGS.
