KYOCERA supplies 209kW solar power generating system to Majuro Hospital in the Marshall Islands

Greentech Lead Asia: Kyocera in partnership with Marubeni
Corporation and Wakachiku Construction   has supplied a 208.98kW
solar power generating system to the Majuro Hospital in the Republic of the
Marshall Islands, a part of Micronesia.

The system is comprised of 972 Kyocera 215-watt solar
modules and expected to produce approximately 257MWh of annual electricity. The
system will offset roughly 81 tons of CO2 emissions per year

This project is being funded by the Japanese government’s
Official Development Assistance (ODA) to support the reduction of carbon
emissions by utilizing renewable energy resources as an alternative to diesel
electric power generation.

The 209kW installation at Majuro Hospital is Kyocera’s
third project in the country.

Kyocera began supplying solar modules to developing
countries in 1984 as part of the Japanese government’s ODA project. Since then,
it has been involved in approximately 40 ODA projects and has supplied a total
of more than 3 megawatts of solar power generating systems to countries in Asia
and Africa.

KYOCERA Solar Modules pass Fraunhofer’s high voltage stress
test

Recently, Kyocera announced that its solar modules passed
potential induced degradation (PID) test conducted by non-profit Fraunhofer
Center for Silicon Photovoltaics CSP (Halle, Germany). Fraunhofer CSP has
certified that Kyocera’s modules did not show any degradation after being
subjected to high voltage stress testing.
