<Summary>

Fujiwara Jupiter and Fujiwara Venus farming type solar plant

 

Japan Finance Corporation (JFC) Tokyo branch small and medium sized enterprise department implemented the loan using “farming type photovoltaic (solar) power generation facility” to the two companies, Fujiwara Jupiter and Fujiwara Venus.

The implementation of the farming type power generation requires stricter conditions than usual. In order to achieve these conditions, especially in terms of the facility funds necessary for the implementation of the farming solar power generation, JFC decided to apply “Environmental and energy countermeasures fund” and carry out loans.

Mega Solar Project was published on The Daily NNA Vietnam

Fujiwara inc invested 64 million USD (720 million yen) to the 64 MW generating power plant in the Nhon Hoi economic zone. Its yearly electric generation capacity is 117 GWh and it will provide electricity for 55,420 families.

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), Japan’s solar power generation capacity is 42.8GW, which is the second in the world. But Mr. Suzuki points the reasons they decided to invest in Vietnam below:

・Daylight hours in Vietnam are long

・Difficulty to connect new solar power generation plants to power grids in Japan

On the other hand, there is uncertainty about the loans from Japanese banks, because there are no government guarantees from Vietnam for mega solar projects. Mr. Suzuki mentions that this project may not bring a big profit, but it is important to be a top runner in the field.

Solar sharing system between tea plantation and electricity generation was published on Chunichi newspaper

Sharing the sunlight of tea plantation, established panels in Tenryuu-ku

Incorporated non-profit organization OIKOS (Hamamatsu-shi, Tenryu-ku, Ikeda Akira) has converted the agricultural land and established a solar power plant in the tea plantation in Yokogawa, Tenryu-ku, Hamamatsu-shi. The idea of “solar sharing” is spreading over the country, and the use of mountainous area for this purpose may get some attention as a new solution.

According to the NGO, the panels were installed in 3 tea plantations totaling 30 a owned by Mr. Ikeda, in the beginning of the year. The height of the column is 2.3 meter. There is almost no influence of light blocking by the solar power generation panel, and on the contrary, there is the effect of defrosting. The method “Komogake”, which covers the tea plantation with sheets for deepening the taste and protect flavor, is used. In this case, the sheets are hanged through a hook on the support column, preventing the tea leaf from touching the sheet and scratching. The power generation is 150kW and the electricity started being sold from April. This income will be spent for returning the loans, making new investments and expansion. According to Mr. Ikeda, the population in the mountainous area is aging, and preserving the tea plantations is becoming difficult. However, some farmers are showing their interests to this activity. If the income increases from selling electricity, more people may be interested”.

Japanese Fujiwara Searching Investment Opportunities in Binh Dinh Province and NEZ

In the morning of February 24th 2017, Mr. Phan Cao Thang – Permanent Deputy Chairman of Binh Dinh Provincial People’s Committee together with representatives of the assistant agencies, consisting of Binh Dinh Economic Zone Authority (BEZA) and the departments such as Foreign Affair, Investment and Planning, Natural Resources and Environment, Industry & Trade, and the related others welcomed and worked with Japanese Fujiwara Company, including Mr. Osamu Kimura – Director, Mr. Katsuhiko Suzuki – General Manager of Sales Department, Mr. Seiji Kurose – Marketing Development Section and their partners, Kkye Investment Consulting & Trading Service Company, who had come searching for investment opportunities on solar power system project in Binh Dinh Province and Nhon Hoi Economic Zone (NEZ) as well.

At the meeting, Mr. Phan Cao Thang and the others related from Binh Dinh Province were introduced about the modernest technology of solar power generating systems which has been successfully applied by Fujiwara in Japan and some other nations. The advantages of this technology is to make huge electric solar power in a narrow area. They can install solar panels on a tea plantation and do it in the later years so that this method help the farmers get double-income, one from cultivation and another by selling of electric power. This kind of technology has been increasingly expanded in Japan where there are the world’s leading earthquakes and natural disasters of typhoon occur every year. Therefore, when constructing structures, Fujiwara set up strict standards to rarely provide to the customers all over the world. However, at the meeting, Fujiwara leaders want to invest a project of solar power generating system in an area from 10 hectares to 100 hectares, locating near the substation of Vietnam Electricity (EVN).

Then the leaders of BEZA and Industry & Trade Department shared some information on existing renewable energy projects in Binh Dinh Province. At the moment, there are 08 investors on 04 locations in Phu Cat District and Phu My District. In Phuong Mai Peninsula, there is an area of about 1,000 hectares on mountain slopes with the height of  250 meters from sea level where can be carried out the project of solar power generator. And at the present, the national electric power system can be connected easily to the location in NEZ. Fujiwara leadership members were very interested in the given information and kindly request Binh Dinh Provincial Leaders to survey the locations and to give the best condition in quick investment procedure processing.

Mr. Phan Cao Thang, Permanent Deputy Chairman of Binh Dinh Provincial People’s Committee highly appreciated the ideas on investing to Binh Dinh Province from Fujiwara Company with the Advanced Project of Solar Power Generator which  Vietnamese Government especially and preferentially prefer. In Binh Dinh Province, there are some investors from Germany, Spain, Thailand and Korea who have registered on generating renewable energy source. The Permanent Deputy Chairman of Binh Dinh Provincial People’s Committee kindly requested Fujiwara Company to apply the above advanced technology and should think of one project that generate both wind power and solar power  in the same area. The provincial departments would go together with the investor on site survey for choosing suitable places. In case of investing agreement, Binh Dinh Province would hand over the investment certificate within one day, just like Japanese Marubeni Lumber’s Project in NEZ. Fujiwara Leaders highly appreciated the attention from Binh Dinh Provincial Leaders. Also in the afternoon of the same day, Fujiwara Company had a survey on Phuong Mai Peninsula in NEZ.
