Trina Solar Co., Ltd., a global leading solar energy total solution provider, announced it has established a partnership with Thailand’s Banpu Power Public Company Limited to construct a 29 MW utility-scale solar project in Japan. Trina Solar Japan Energy Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Trina Solar, is in charge of the development, engineering, procurement and management of this project.


The project which is located in Kurokawa District of northeastern Japan’s Miyagi Prefecture will be entirely using Trina Solar modules. It is expected to be put into operation in the summer of 2019. The clean electricity generated by the project will be sold to regional utility Tohoku Electric Power Co. and can serve the needs of about 10,000 Japanese households.



“As a leading energy enterprise in Asia, Banpu Power is operating in both conventional and renewable power businesses across the Asian-Pacific region. With 20 years of development in the PV industry, Trina Solar is a leading solar energy total solution provider and has footprints in more than 100 countries and regions. We are fully confident in the cooperation with Banpu Power,” said David You, Vice President of Trina Solar and President of International System Business Unit (ISBU) of Trina Solar.


According to You, this project is an excellent example of cooperation with local contractors and international partners to deliver high quality assets in the Japanese market. He said Trina Japan has built up a strong team, obtained a large number of backlog projects, and is continuously developing business pipelines in Japan.


“Following our Greener strategy, Banpu Power will strategically increase renewable power capacity in our business portfolio. We seek investment opportunities in renewable projects in our current country markets. We believe that our ongoing solar power business in Japan and the strong partnership with Trina Solar will enable this project to successfully achieve the commercial operation plan," said Sutee Sukruan, Chief Executive Officer of Banpu Power.


Carlos Garcia, Trina Solar ISBU’s regional head for Japan said, “Japan has been a tough market for international players. I am very proud of the success that our team has made and we are looking forward to further diversifying our clean energy solutions in the Japanese market.
