Total Solar International, a wholly owned Total subsidiary dedicated to utility-scale solar plants, has announced the start of the construction of Miyagi Osato Solar Park, a large-scale solar plant of 52 megawatt-peak (MWp) located in Osato, Miyagi prefecture, Japan. The project, which has achieved financial close, is expected to start up in 2021 and will provide clean and reliable electricity to Japanese households.

'The Miyagi Osato Solar Park is Total’s third and biggest solar plant in Japan, which will allow us to reach a cumulated capacity of over 100 MWp in the country. This project is in line with Total’s commitment to develop renewable production capacities worldwide and in particular in the Japanese market, where we actively pursue our development', said Julien Pouget, Senior Vice-President Renewables at Total.

The plant is designed to fully meet Japan’s stringent earthquake-resistant building standards. The facility will be equipped with around 116,000 SunPower® Maxeon® high efficiency solar panels that deliver reliable performance throughout the entire life of every installation.

The plant will be operated by Miyagi Osato Solar Park G.K., a special purpose company, majority-owned by Total Solar International (90%), alongside SB Energy Corp (10%), a Japanese subsidiary of SoftBank Group.

The launch the construction of Miyagi Osato Solar Park follows the beginning of the operation of two other large-scale solar plants of Total Solar International in Japan: Miyako Solar Park (25 MWp, 2019) and Nanao Power Plant (27 MWp, 2017). This rapid growth (over 100 MWp of cumulative capacity achieved in 2 years) sets Total as one of the most dynamic players in the Japanese solar market.
