Shizen Energy, Alamport, and NiX begin trial operation of 1.6 MWp rooftop solar power plant for DNP Indonesia
Shizen Energy Inc.(Shizen Energy), Alamport Inc.(Alamport), and NiX JAPAN Co., Ltd. (NiX) have begun trial operation of a 1.6 MWp rooftop solar power plant for PT DNP Indonesia, an Indonesian subsidiary of Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd. (DNP). A ceremony was held on August 7 to celebrate the commencement of the power plant.
Shizen Energy, Alamport, and NiX have jointly established PT ATW Alam Hijau (Alam Energy) with ATW Group, which provides solar power generation equipment sales and construction services. Alam Energy provides solar rental services to manufacturers and other industrial customers as well as commercial facilities in Indonesia.
In this project, Alam Energy installed an industrial roof-mounted solar power plant with a total area of approximately 8,000 ㎡ on the roof of the DNP Indonesia Karawang plant in Karawang, Jawa Barat, Indonesia. The electricity generated by the plant will be utilized by DNP Indonesia.
Masayuki Emori, President Director of DNP Indonesia stated, “DNP always considers the coexistence of its business activities with the global environment and works to solve environmental issues with the aim of realizing a sustainable environment, society, and economy. Through the installation of this roof-mounted solar power plant, we will promote the manufacturing of environmentally friendly products and contribute to solving environmental issues, which are an international challenge.”
DNP Indonesia will be able to benefit from price-competitive clean renewable energy without having to undertake initial investments such as the cost of installing solar power generation equipment. In addition, since Indonesia’s current main power generation method is coal-fired thermal power generation, switching a portion of power consumption to renewable energy sources is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1,397 tons/year during the contract period, which will contribute to achieving the Indonesian government’s goal of carbon neutrality by 2060.
In order to “take action for the blue planet,” Shizen Energy will flexibly respond to various needs such as decarbonization and strengthening energy resilience by combining digital technologies such as EMS and storage batteries with the development of renewable energy power sources that exist in harmony with local communities. Together with partners, Shizen Energy aims to realize a 100% renewable energy world as soon as possible.
