Tokyo-based Toyo Engineering Corp (TYO:6330) announced on Thursday it has received an order to build a 42-MW direct current (DC) photovoltaic (PV) plant in Iwaki City, Fukushima Prefecture.
The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract has been awarded by local firm Pacifico Energy Iwaki GK. The plant is scheduled to commence operations in 2019.
Japanese utility Tohoku Electric Power Co (Tohoku Electric Power Co) will be the sole purchaser of the facility's output. Toyo affiliate, TAG O&M Services Corporation, will be in charge of the operation and maintenance (O&M) services.
Currently, Toyo is working on two other PV plants, a 235-MW project in Okayama prefecture and a 96-MW farm in Miyazaki prefecture. Overall, the company has won 500 MW in large-scale solar projects, it noted.
