Solar Frontier has established a strategic engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) alliance with BELECTRIC and Shoseki Engineering & Construction (SEC) to combine their capabilities in CIS-based solar power plants for the growing Japan megasolar market. According to them, the team up will leverage BELECTRIC's expertise in megasolar installation, SEC's market knowledge and network of suppliers, and Solar Frontier's technological strength in real-world, economical solar module performance.

This combination is designed to deliver greater value in overall megasolar projects. This alliance in Japan builds on the foundation established between Solar Frontier and Belectric, who have worked together since 2010 and established the joint venture company, PV CIStems GmbH & Co. KG, in 2012 to work on projects around the world.

The companies have been working together on the Kunitomi Megasolar project in Miyazaki, Japan, which began operating in March this year. This agreement formalizes their cooperation going forward to achieve further efficiency in execution, faster project completion and optimized return on investment. A project in Kagoshima that started this November will be the first for the trio under the alliance.

The solar and megasolar market in Japan is rapidly moving toward demand for total solutions. Solar Frontier, BELECTRIC and SEC have taken the opportunity to fulfill this demand by working together. The alliance is expected to strengthen the positions of all three in the growing Japanese megasolar market.
