Kyocera supplies 9,000 solar modules for 1.2 MW power plant in Czech Republic

27 May 2010

Kyoto/Neuss 28 May 2010 – The Japanese technology corporation Kyocera, a leading manufacturer in the field of photovoltaics, has supplied an outdoor plant in the Czech Republic with solar modules. Covering an area of more than 28,000 m², the plant delivers an output of 1.2 megawatts peak (MWp).

In the South Moravian farming village of Moravský Žižkov, 8,960 Kyocera solar modules of the type KD135GH-2PU are currently producing solar energy. When selecting products for solar installations, the Czech company Nelumbo focuses on quality and has therefore put its trust in Kyocera. Due to the many hours of sunshine in this region, a high annual electricity yield of 1.3 million kilowatt hours is expected from the plant, which was completed in December 2009.

Durable and efficient high-yield solar modules are of great importance, especially for large-scale plants. Kyocera offers more than 35 years of experience in the solar industry and with its fully-integrated manufacturing process – controlling every stage of production – it is able to guarantee high quality and performance of its modules.

Nelumbo is one of the most experienced companies in photovoltaics and solar thermal power within the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Every year it constructs 200 to 300 solar plants in the Czech Republic and offers its customers complete network support, from installation through to maintenance.
The interplay of powerful modules, expert installation and an optimum location mean that this solar plant is able to supply 280 households per year with electricity from sunlight, thus offsetting 1,150 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
