Solar Frontier scores 11MW order

Solar Frontier has been tapped to supply PV modules for an 11MW solar plant on the southern Japanese island of Kyushu.

Tokyo-based Kinden will handle EPC duties for the project, which could cost up to ¥6bn ($58.6m), a spokesperson for PV developer Terra Power tells Recharge.

Construction will likely start in August on a 17.8-hectare site in the city of Kanoya, on the Osumi peninsula in Kagoshima prefecture.

Terra Power expects to complete the project by next March.

The company, a Tokyo-based subsidiary of IT outsourcing services provider Bit-isle, has already developed a handful of small PV projects in Japan, including two 1.5MW installations in Hiroshima prefecture.

Solar Frontier, a unit of Show Shell Sekiyu, announced plans in April to build a 29MW solar plant with liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) distributor Chopro at Nagasaki Airport.
