Osakikamijima Mega Solar Power Plant
One of IES’ first projects in Japan, the solar farm was established in Osakikamijima as a viable energy solution for the local community and stakeholders. Osakikamijima has a community of 8,000 people, mostly fishermen and farmers. It is arguably one of Japan’s most beautiful islands and just a 20 minute ferry ride from Hiroshima city.
The project is driven by IES’ vision for connectivity, transparency and responsible development. The project’s output provides ample power for the islanders’ needs and is equally profitable for investors and stakeholders.The construction phase of the project provided steady employment for 200 local people and IES has continued to hire local employees for the project’s operations phase.
As part of IES’ commitment to enhance the island, we have provided fertile grounds for the islanders to cultivate a fruit orchard, established a learning center and built a bicycle trail for public use.
Today, the solar power plant provides an alternative means of energy to the prefecture’s grid, enabling the community at large to enjoy the all benefits of solar energy.
Wood Pellet Siam
Southern Region of Thailand, Thailand
Wood Pellet Siam (WPS) was established in 2015 as a subsidiary of IES and has since dedicated its operations to trade biomass fuels internationally. Our wood pellets are produced using 100% legally and sustainably-sourced Rubber wood, procured through our network of trusted local suppliers in the south of Thailand. Having been tested by SGS, an internationally accredited inspection organization, we can ensure that our wood pellets are not only high in density but also low in moisture content, allowing them to be burned at very high combustion efficiency – a minimum net calorific value of 3,900 kcal/kg.
Through continuous cooperation with local supply partners and the Quality Assurance department of Japan Gas and Appliances Inspection Association (JIA), WPS has been recognized as the first foreign trading company to be certified under the Japanese Forestry Agency’s guideline, after having obtained a certification of woody biomass for power generation for its wood pellet supply capacity of 30,000 Tons per year.
Following the success of our first JIA certification, an expansion plan is set to certify our wood pellets of up to 150,000 Tons per year by 2017.
Monsoon Wind Power
Sekong and Attapue, Lao PDR
IES’ 600 MW Monsoon Wind Power Project with Government of Laos (GOL) is a groundbreaking venture that is poised to be ASEAN’s largest wind farm and the first wind power development in Lao PDR.
The project is also aimed to kickstart a much needed growth in the country’s infrastructure starting by creating a source of employment and income for the communities. Monsoon Wind Power will create hundreds of jobs at the site while generating thousands more in related fields, allowing the country to move forward with a green energy model.
With a total capacity of 600 MW, the project will occupy an area of 68,000 hectares (400,000 rai) in Sekong and Attapeu provinces – both promising sources of wind. The generated power is expected to play an important role in supporting the ASEAN power grid policy. About 95% of the power is expected to be sold to the ASEAN market, mainly Thailand and neighboring countries.
