First, an aerial video of the project Deneb Renewable Energy developed together with partners at Sakura City, Tochigi Prefecture. The main investor, and project final design, procurement and supervision was done by IBC Solar AG, together with Japanese construction partner Yokohama Kankyo Design. The project is now ready to start operation and should be selling electricity in October, 2014.
And a screen shot of the same project:
Below are a few photos of a second project developed by Deneb Renewable Energy, at Kami-Ishigami, Otawara City, Tochigi, which started operation on September 24, 2014. The project's main investor is Square, a Tokyo-based real estate investment company. The design, procurement and supervision was also handled by IBC Solar AG. TTK, a local Tochigi-based construction company, was the main construction contractor.
Both projects used racking provided by Schletter Japan, which was installed by Kyoto-based Asia Machinery Solutions Co., Ltd. Both projects also use inverters, transformers and grid connection-related equipment provided by ABB KK. And both projects will sell power to Tokyo Electric Power Co., Ltd. (TEPCO).
