Toshiba has won a JPY9bn ($89M) order from Thailand’s Gunkul Engineering to build a solar power plant in Kimitsu, Chiba prefecture, Japan.
The facility, located on a 47-hectare site, will have a power generation capacity of about 33.5MW.
As per the terms of the contract, Toshiba will be responsible for the plant’s overall engineering — including basic design and the supply of major equipment — and construction.
The plant will generate about 45M kWh of electricity annually, enough to meet the needs of 10,000 households.
The power plant — expected to reduce 20,000t of carbon dioxide emissions annually — is scheduled to commence operation in March 2019.
