Chinese firm Powerway Renewable Energy Co Ltd said Thursday it has provided the solar mounting systems for a 9.9-MW photovoltaic (PV) plant in the central parts of Japan’s Honshu island.
The solar farm was constructed by GKS Inc at a hillside in Kyoto prefecture’s city of Hiroshima. Due to the specific topography of the project site, Powerway designed new mounting structures with different module layouts in order to ensure their stability, maximum efficiency and lower construction costs.
The solar facility is equipped with 39,600 pieces of 250-W PV modules. It is expected to generate some 11 GWh of electricity per year, enough to power about 2,500 local households.
So far, Powerway has provided the mounting structures and services for over 122 solar plants in the country, CMO Sherry Shi noted. “With the completion of Kyoto’s largest PV power station, Powerway’s business in Japan has risen to a new level,” she added.
