juwi Shizen Energy Concluded the EPC Contract for 14MW EPC Project “Kai Shobuzawa Solar Power Plant” in Yamanashi Prefecture


On 20th August 2020, juwi Shizen Energy Inc. (“juwi Shizen Energy”) concluded the EPC (engineering, procurement, construction) contract for the “Kai Shobuzawa Solar Power Plant” project, an approximately 14 megawatt (DC) mega solar power plant. It is the first project that juwi Shizen Energy received an order from Amp Energy. (“Amp”)

This power plant will be constructed on a site of approximately 15ha located in Kai City, Yamanashi Prefecture, commissioned by Kai Taiyoko Daiichi GK (Chuo-Ward, Tokyo), which is the SPC owned by Amp. Annual output is expected to be approximately 18,000,000 kilowatt hours, equivalent to the annual electrical power use of approximately 5770 ordinary homes.

juwi Shizen Energy was established in 2013 as a joint venture between juwi AG, a company headquartered in Germany that is involved in development and EPC for renewable energy around the world, and Shizen Energy Inc. (“Shizen Energy”), activities of which include the development of and securing of funding for renewable energy power plants. juwi Shizen Energy also takes orders for EPC-only construction projects, as well as being involved in Shizen Energy’s development projects. juwi Shizen Energy is currently proceeding an additional over 300 megawatts of peak output under construction.

juwi Shizen Energy will continue to leverage the knowledge and experience it has accumulated through its global operations and aim to contribute to the increased use of renewable energy and the construction of a sustainable society both in Japan and overseas by providing EPC solutions that meet the needs of the local areas in which a power plants are constructed.
