Japanese companies Transnational Uyeno Solar Corp. and Sojitz Pla-Net Corp. inaugurated a solar photovoltaic system for Toyo Ink Philippines at the Carmelrey Industrial Park in Canlubang, Laguna.

“This is a first for a Filipino-Japanese firm in the country and marks the beginning of more projects and our serious commitment to growing the business,” TUSC general manager Jen Tablante said in a statement.

Transnational Uyeno was formed as a joint venture between Philippines-based Transnational Renewable Energy Corp. and Japan-based Uyeno Green Solutions Ltd.

Toyo Ink Philippines president Takahiro Ochiai expressed satisfaction over the solar installation, which would lessen the company’s carbon footprint while saving on electricity costs.

“I know that there are numerous Japanese companies interested in investing in solar power and I tell them it is a worthwhile investment,” Ochiai said.
