LG CNS, a company specializing in information technology services including consulting, system integration, and business process outsourcing, has won a 130-billion-won project to build a solar power plant in Japan.
The company said on July 21 that it would engage in constructing a 33-megawatt solar power farm for the next two years in Oita Prefecture in the north of Kyushu Island. It landed the deal from Oita Solar Power Corp. invested by U.S. solar power company Sonnedix.
The company will use high-efficiency photovoltaic modules manufactured by its group affiliate LG Electronics. According to LG CNS, the modules have the world's highest power generation capacity per unit area. The company holds a construction license in Japan in the areas of electric, construction, and public works and has already built solar power plants worth a total of 43-megawatt capacity.
In addition to the Imaichi solar power plant in Oita Prefecture, LG CNS is currently in talks to win projects in four Japanese locations (total capacity of 80 MW). It plans to expand its presence elsewhere including Latin America.
Kim Tae-geuk, vice president of LG CNS, said, "The latest project winning is meaningful for us in that it was in Japan in which foreign companies have a hard time operating and winning construction orders."
