Japan's Shizen Energy starts solar project in Indonesia




Japanese renewables developer Shizen Energy Inc announced that it has kicked off the operation of an 806-kWp solar power system in Indonesia.


The plant is located in West Java province. The project is co-developed with Alam Nix Renewables Pte Ltd (ANR).


For this, Shizen and ANR have formed a joint venture, a local firm, called PT ATW Alam Hijau alongside ATW Group.


The firm has been formed to complete the photovoltaic system.


The solar park is expected to generate 1,089 MWh of clean electricity annually while the solar park's output will be utilized by APL, the company stated.


It has been reported that the "solar farm was installed on land adjacent to a distribution facility owned by PT Anugerah Pharmindo Lestari (APL), a unit of Swiss health care corporation Zuellig Pharma. "


According to Shizen, this PV plant will contribute to achieving the local government's goal for Indonesia to become carbon neutral by 2060.
