Tokyo Electric Power Co and trader Mitsui & Co have set up a joint company to build a solar power generation system at Tokyo International Airport at Haneda. The new firm, Haneda Solar Power Co, is capitalized at 5 million yen, of which 51% was put up by Tokyo Electric Power and 49% by Mitsui.
Haneda Solar Power will set up the solar power generation system on the rooftop of a new international cargo terminal at the airport, and start providing electricity in line with the terminal's planned operational launch in October 2010.
The facility will have an output capacity of 2,000 kilowatts, or about 10% of the terminal's projected annual electricity consumption. It will help reduce the terminal's carbon dioxide emissions.© JCN
