JGC Awarded EPC Contract for Mega Solar Power Plant in Chiba Pref.


Yokohama JapanJGC Corporation announced today that it has received a contract for the construction of a large-scale solar photovoltaic ("mega solar") power plant from Futtsu Solar, Inc., a joint venture between Mitsuuroko Green Energy Co., Ltd. and Recycle One, Inc., and other partners. The lump-sum turnkey contract, valued at around 10 billion yen, calls for the engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning work (EPCC) for a mega solar power plant with a capacity of 40,000 kW in Futtsu City, Chiba Prefecture. Commissioning work at the plant is scheduled for completion in July 2014.

The plant will be constructed on a plot of land roughly 440,000 square meter in size, in the site of former gravel pit owned by the Futtsu Solar joint venture. With a capacity of 40,000 kW, enough to power 11,500 typical households for a year, the plant will be the largest mega solar plant in the Kanto region.

JGC participated in a 100,000 kW concentrating solar power plant project in Spain in 2010 as a co-owner, and since 2012 has been leading a 26,500 kW mega solar power plant project in Oita Prefecture. JGC has already been praised for its thorough application of technical knowledge toward contributing, as an investor, to development of renewable energy both in Japan and abroad, and it is believed that the contract for this mega solar construction project was awarded due to the success of its recent efforts in the solar power sector.

Demand for electric power is rising, not only in Japan, but worldwide. In the name of realizing a sustainable future, JGC is dedicated to furthering the development of renewable energy sources through construction of sustainable power plants both in Japan and abroad.
