GE to support mega solar project in Furukawa

By Editor


GE announced that GE’s Power Conversion business has been chosen by Pacifico Energy to provide its Brillance solar skid solutions for its mega-solar project in Furukawa.

The announcement marks another landmark deal for GE that has focus on Japanese market.

Japanese solar market has shown significant growth in the past few years as it races to meet the government’s goal of achieving 53 GW of solar PV capacity by 2030.

GE’s involvement in the 56.9-megawatt (DC) Furukawa mega-solar project, closely follows the recently awarded Hosoe solar project, the company said.

As part of the deal, GE is offering its Brilliance Solar Inverters, transformers, Ring Main Units and Recombiners.

GE will also provide a Long Term Services Agreement for a minimum of 20 years to proactively manage the maintenance and service of the GE equipment to support availability of the inverter systems throughout the lifetime of the project.

These attributes are vital to the overall economics of the Furukawa solar project given decreasing local feed-in-tariffs (FIT), GE said.

“GE is committed to the Japanese solar industry. The Furukawa project together with the Hosoe solar project demonstrates how we are able to continually build our relationship and bring value to Japanese customers,” said John Chatwin, Power & Industry Segment Leader, GE Power Conversion.
