JFE Holdings Inc. won an order from Mitsui & Co. and Tokio Marine Asset Management Co. to build three solar power plants in Japan through subsidiaries.

Four units of JFE Steel will supply the plants with the combined capacity of 8.3 megawatts in Yamaguchi and Wakayama prefectures in western Japan, the companies said today in a statement, without providing the value of the order. The plants will be operational in the first half of 2013, they said.

Mitsui and Tokio Marine Asset Management are working on a project to construct 10 solar power stations across Japan at a total cost of 9 billion yen ($114 million).

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in Japan has approved clean energy projects totaling 1,780 megawatts of capacity, with solar accounting for 83 percent, as of the end of September under a government incentive program.
