Japanese engineering company JGC Corp (TYO:1963) said on Wednesday it won a contract to build a 80.8-MW solar photovoltaic (PV) power facility in Iwate prefecture.
The engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) deal was awarded to JGC by Karumai Higashi Solar LLC, which acquired the project from its original owner - Japanese PV developer Renova Inc.
JGC plans to build the facility on about 300 hectares (741 acres) of hilly, wooded land in Karumai city.
The new solar park will have the capacity to produce enough power for about 25,000 homes and it is scheduled for commissioning by the end of November 2019.
