Pacifico Energy breaks ground for 111.05MW solar plant in Japan

It will be built on the site of a golf course.

Japan-based Pacifico Energy K.K. commenced the construction of a 111.055 MW(DC) solar power generation plant in Nishimuro-gun, Wakayama Prefecture from February 2020, according to an announcement.

The plant, the first that Pacifico Energy developed in Wakayama Prefecture, is set to become one of the largest operational plants in the prefecture.

The EPC contractor of the plant is Sharp Energy Solution. The plant will be constructed on the site of a golf course in Nishimuro-gun, Wakayama Prefecture, Japan.

Commercial operations are expected to begin in the Spring of 2022. Once commissioned, the plant will generate approximately 150 million kWh annually, contributing to a reduction of approximately 900,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions for an electricity supply period of around 18 years.

This project was financed by a lending syndicate arranged by MUFG Bank, Ltd., with law firm Baker McKenzie acting as legal counsel to Pacifico Energy.
