Kyocera Corp., Marubeni Corp. and Wakachiku Construction Co. Ltd. have supplied a solar power generating system to the Majuro Hospital in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, a part of Micronesia.
According to the companies, the solar energy system is the largest PV installation in the country.
The 208.98 kW solar installation will generate approximately 257 MWh of electricity annually. The system comprises 972 Kyocera 215 W solar modules, which the company says have enhanced support bars to strengthen wind pressure resistance, as the island nation experiences strong trade winds.
The project is being funded by the Japanese government's Official Development Assistance Program, which aims to support the reduction of carbon emissions by utilizing renewable energy resources.
