Germany-based Wirsol and Los Angeles-based Greenpower Capital have entered into a joint venture to provide various services for the Japanese solar market.

Services will include project finance; engineering, procurement and construction duties; and operations and maintenance. The companies are targeting large-scale solar plants totaling 10 MW or more.

"Both the Japanese and the German PV markets demand the highest system quality and best performance," says Stefan Riel, co-founder and member of the executive board at Wirsol. "Teaming up with Greenpower Capital will allow us to partner with local developers to build mega-solar projects in Japan."
