In February 2017, Conergy Japan K.K. signed an agreement for the sale of a fully operational 3.75MWp solar plant in Sannohe, Aomori Prefecture.
Long regarded as one of the solar industry’s pioneers in providing solar services, Conergy provided its full endto- end solar services to the Sannohe Solar Power 1 GK (SSP1) plant – which included project development, full turn-key EPC and Operations & Maintenance services. Conergy Japan collaborated with Center Denki KK on the local construction of the solar plant.
The SSP1 project is located on a 9.755 hectare site and has been operational since December 2016. The plant is expected to produce approximately 4,166MWh of clean energy annually, enough electricity to power 600 homes while eliminating the emission of more than 2030 tons of CO2 per year. The energy supplied by the plant is being sold to Tohoku Electric Power Corporation through a 20 year power purchase agreement.
Hideyuki Otaka, Managing Director of Conergy Japan says, “We are very pleased to be working on this new project and to be able to deliver to our client an operational plant using all of Conergy’s in-house capabilities. These past 12 months has been a year of important strategic achievements for Conergy Japan, with the conclusion of the sale of our Ichinoseki and Sannohe projects. With these excellent results, we look forward to directing our capital and efforts towards developing further bankable solar projects and strengthening our growth prospects for years to come.”
“Addressing climate change and meeting the ever growing demand for energy continue to be pressing concerns in Japan. Conergy is committed to doing its part in creating valuable power plant assets and developing vital clean energy infrastructure in the country by adopting advanced solar technologies while leveraging our financial resources and technical expertise,” added Alexander Lenz, Conergy‘s CEO.
