CHANGZHOU, China — Trina Solar has begun shipping 57.1 MW of solar modules to Toyo Engineering Corporation (“Toyo Engineering”) for use in the Furukawa Mega Solar Project (the “Project”)” located in Osaki City, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan.
The delivery of solar modules is scheduled to be completed before the end of the third quarter of 2016. The Project, developed by Pacifico Energy Furukawa G.K. (“Pacifico Energy”), is being constructed on an abandoned golf course in Osaki and is expected to be completed and commissioned in the fourth quarter of this year.
The clean electricity that the Project will generate will be purchased by Tohoku Electric Power Company to energize the region.
“We are delighted to be selected as an exclusive supplier to Toyo Engineering and Pacifico Energy again for their large-scale solar project,” commented Ms. Ye Chen, President of Trina Solar Japan Ltd. “We believe the historic climate pact adopted at COP21 will further bolster the development of solar energy in Japan, as well as other countries around the globe. Looking ahead, we will continue to reinforce our deployment in the Japanese market while proactively devoting our efforts to prevent global warming through continuously delivering innovative solar products.”
