Onikoube Solar Power Plant is planned for construction on a 156-hectare site of an abandoned golf course. The construction plan requires special planning due to the frames being closer together than in conventional plant designs and the solar panels installed at a steeper angle, which will enable installation 362,960 solar panels. The plant will also achieve high-efficiency power generation with design and construction that accommodates for the slope of the ground and the snowfall in the area.
Koji Saito, senior vice president of Grid Aggregation at Toshiba ESS said, “We have rich experience of designing and construction of large-scale solar power generation facilities, which is the top share of any company in Japan*. Based on this track record I am confident that our technological and workmanship capabilities will make a big contribution to the construction of this plant.”
Toshiba ESS provides power generation systems and solutions in wide variety of renewable energy types, from solar power to hydroelectricity, geothermal and wind-generated power, and more.
