April 21 (Renewables Now) - Japanese renewables developer Shizen Energy Inc said today it has started the operation of an 806-kWp solar power system in Indonesia's West Java province, co-developed with Alam Nix Renewables Pte Ltd (ANR).
In order to complete the photovoltaic (PV) system, Shizen and ANR established a local firm called PT ATW Alam Hijau (AAH) alongside ATW Group.
The solar farm was installed on land adjacent to a distribution facility owned by PT Anugerah Pharmindo Lestari (APL), a unit of Swiss health care corporation Zuellig Pharma. Expected to generate 1,089 MWh of clean electricity per year, the solar park's output will be utilized by APL.
Shizen noted that this PV plant will contribute to achieving the local government's goal for Indonesia to become carbon neutral by 2060.
