oursun Japan Holding AG to focus on clusters of small and efficient solar PV applications
Zug/Yokohama. The Japan-based BIJ Corporation, the Italian finergia advisory & finance s.r.l. and the Swiss MEECO Invest AG have successfully formed a joint company on April 10, 2013 in Zug, Switzerland. The creation of the joint company, oursun Japan Holding AG, is a consequence of the initial Memorandum of Understanding signed in February in Yokohama.
Initially, the new company will develop, build, operate and sell photovoltaic (PV) projects reaching a total of 30 MW in 2013 / 2014, primarily but not exclusively in Japan. oursun Japan Holding AG aims at installing both grid-tied PV as well as off-grid solutions designed by The meeco Group such as sun2live (solar and energy storage), sun2go (portable solar), sun2flow (solar water pumping) and sun2com (telecommunication solutions).
oursun Japan Holding AG was founded in order to strengthen the strategic partnership of the involved partners and ensure right from the beginning an efficient and well-structured realization of future projects. „Our first objective is to focus on small, efficient applications in the 50 kW range and of these as many as possible, for which under the current Japanese Feed-In Tariff regime the implementation is rather quick and the economic and environmental impact is more sustainable than a few large multi megawatt projects”, says Dieter Trutschler, Sales Director of The meeco Group. BIJ Corporation will provide and manage all the local resources in Japan. This comprises the identification of suitable land and roof surface for the installation of the PV plants as well as management of the implementation. finergia and The meeco Group will be in charge of developing applicable technical solutions, ensuring engineering and project guidance as well as implementation services. Additionally, finergia and The meeco Group will support BIJ with experienced specialists as well as financial arranging services for project finance schemes.
