Solar PV

The project, located in the boundary between Marumori-machit in Miyagi prefecture and Soma city in Fukushima prefecture, is owned by Eurus Energy Holdings with Hitachi as its EPC contractor.

Canadian Solar will supply approximately 73,556 pieces of its 60 cell high efficiency CS6P255P modules with power output of 255Wp for the project.

Electricity generated from the plant will be purchased by Tohoku Electric Power, under a 20-year agreement.

The solar project will power around 5,000 homes and is estimated to reduce approximately 9,200 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually.

Hitachi senior engineer Kosho Aikawa said, "Quality and reliability are key criteria we use to select our partners and suppliers. After extensive evaluation we are impressed with the quality of Canadian Solar’s PV modules as well as their track record of delivering high quality solar modules to large scale solar power projects worldwide."
