Gestamp Solar begins the construction of its first plant in Japan
Last July Gestamp Solar started a project to build a new photovoltaic plant in Japán (Ibaraki), Fukuroda a name which honours the region where it is located.
It is Gestamp Solar first project in Japan and it is forecasted that this new development will be completed about the middle of 2015. The facility has a nominal power of 26 MW and a peak power of 31.6 MW with 126.000 modules and 6 transformation centers. It is estimated that the annual production will be 37.000 MWh/year avoiding to the atmosphere the emission of 24.000 tons of CO2.
For this project Gestamp Solar has had the collaboration of Gonvarri Solar Steel as a supplier of fixed structures (with an angle of inclination of 10°), because it has an extensive international experience, but also a high production capacity and a wide knowledge on metal structures for solar photovoltaic technologies.
