Komatsu Ltd constructed a new assembly plant equipped with solar and biomass power generation systems on the site of its main production base in Komatsu City, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan.

The company plans to start operations of the solar power generation system in July 2014 and the biomass power generation system in December. The output capacity of the solar system, which was installed on the roof of the plant, is 550kW.

The electricity generated by the systems will be used in house to reduce the amount of electricity to be purchased.
