Japanese Begin with the Construction of the World's Largest Floating Solar Power Plant

27.01.2016 | Kyocera | global.kyocera.com

In a joint venture, Kyocera Corporation and Century Tokyo Leasing Corporation announced today that Kyocera TCL Solar LLC has started construction of the world’s largest 13.7 megawatt (MW) floating solar power plant on the Yamakura Dam reservoir.

Scheduled for launch in the first quarter of 2018, the plant will be comprised of approximately 51,000 Kyocera modules installed over a fresh water surface area of 180,000m2. The project will generate an estimated 16,170 megawatt hours (MWh) per year — enough electricity to power approximately 4,970 typical households — while offsetting about 8,170 tons of CO2 emissions annually. This is equal to 19,000 barrels of oil consumed.

The largest floating solar power plant

With the decrease in tracts of land suitable for utility-scale solar power plants in Japan due to the rapid implementation of solar power, Kyocera TCL Solar has been developing floating solar power plants since 2014, which utilize Japan’s abundant water surfaces of reservoirs for agricultural and flood-control purposes. The company began operation of 1.7MW and 1.2MW plants in March 2015 followed by the launch of a 2.3MW plant in June.
