Kyocera to develop 13.4MW floating PV plant in Japan

Kyocera Corp. and Century Tokyo Leasing Corp. will develop and operate a 13.4MW floating solar power plant on Japan’s Yamakura Dam reservoir that will become the largest floating solar installation in the world. The project will be comprised of approximately 50,000 Kyocera modules installed over a water surface area of 180,000 square meters. The plant will generate an estimated 15,635MW hours (MWh) per year — enough electricity to power approximately 4,700 typical households.
