Singapore-based independent power producer (IPP) Vena Energy has completed the construction and started commercial operation of a 37-MW solar PV park in Japan's Nagano prefecture, it said.
Named Kawakami Solar Project, the plant consists of more than 89,000 bifacial PV solar panels covering a 49.87-hectares (123.23 acres) area in Kawakami village.
The solar farm will be able to generate enough clean electricity to power over 10,000 local homes for a year.
With Kawakami Solar, the Singaporean IPP expands its Japanese operational portfolio to 26 wind and solar power facilities with a combined capacity of 516 MW across the country, the firm added.
