KYOCERA TCL Solar Completes Construction of Third Floating Solar Power Plant in Japan

12.06.2015 | Kyocera | global.kyocera.com

A ceremony was held on May 24 to commemorate completion of the 2.3-megawatt (MW) plant, which will generate an estimated total of 2,680 megawatt hours (MWh) per year — enough electricity to power approximately 820 typical households.

Kyocera and Century Tokyo Leasing jointly established Kyocera TCL Solar LLC in August 2012 for the purpose of constructing and operating multiple solar power plants in Japan. Due to the rapid implementation of solar power, securing tracts of land suitable for utility-scale plants is becoming increasingly difficult in Japan. In order to utilize the country’s abundant water surfaces, Kyocera TCL Solar began installing floating solar power generation systems last year. This marks the third floating installation completed by the company, in addition to 1.7MW and 1.2MW plants  which began operation last month at two different sites in Hyogo Prefecture. The company is also developing a 13.4MW installation  on a dam reservoir in Chiba Prefecture, Japan.

Floating solar power generating systems typically generate more electricity than ground-mount and rooftop systems due to the cooling effect of the water. Moreover, these platforms are 100% recyclable, utilizing high-density polyethylene, which can withstand ultraviolet rays and resists corrosion.
