Solar farm installed at Nagasaki Airport in Japan

Solar Frontier, a provider of solar energy solutions, and Chopro, a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) distributor and solar power producer, have completed the installation of a 30MW solar power plant located next to Nagasaki Airport in Japan.

The ‘SOL de Omura Minojima Solar Power Plant’ is one of the biggest solar installations in Japan and is expected to generate approximately 37GWh of electricity per year, equivalent to the annual power consumption of 7,500 households in Japan.

Solar Frontier and Chopro jointly established the company Nagasaki Solar Energy to develop and manage the new power plant, which was constructed by engineering firm Chiyoda Corporate.

The project benefited from the support of regional companies, including a syndicate of local banks from the Kyushu region (led by Mizuho Bank), which provided non-recourse project financing. Electricity generated by the power plant is being sold to the Kyushu Electric Power Company.
