GE has supplied its Brilliance inverters for the 96.2 MW DC Hosoe solar plant — developed by Pacifico Energy — in the Kyushu region in Japan.

GE did not reveal the financial details of the deal.

The Hosoe photovoltaic solar plant is expected to generate clean energy for up to 30,000 households. The government’s target is to achieve renewable energy power generation at between 22-24 percent of the energy mix by 2030.

GE said the 50 units of 1.26-MW Brilliance inverters delivered to the project met the customer’s requirements for both reliability and cost competitiveness. GE also supplied transformers, ring main units and recombiners, preassembled on skids and optimized for flawless integration.

GE Energy Financial Services, the global energy investor of General Electric, is financially supporting the Hosoe project.

GE said it is providing a 20-year LTSA (long-term services agreement), which includes an availability guarantee on GE’s equipment. This agreement secures the plant performance throughout the lifetime of the project.

“Our experience in utility-scale solar projects has enabled us to complete the commissioning two months ahead of schedule, which has been highly appreciated by our customer,” said Patrick Fetzer, CEO Solar, GE’s Power Conversion business.
