Some 400 KW of Kyocera solar photovoltaic panels have been installed on the roof of the European Court of Justice building in Luxembourg. The system is expected to generate about 360,000 KW-hours annually.
The installation, which was completed in December, is comprised of 2262 Kyocera KC175GH-2P (175 W) crystalline-silicon modules connected to four SMA SC100 inverters.
“We are proud that the roof-mounted system at the European Court of Justice will be equipped with Kyocera modules,” said Mitsuru Imanaka, president of the company’s European operations. “The confidence shown in our products adds further impetus in our continual pursuit for superior quality. While aiming to achieve this, we are driven by our resolve to develop environmentally friendly products and technologies that provide both environmental and economic advantages.”
Kyocera, with PV module assembly plants in the Czech Republic and other locations, has started construction of a new solar-cell manufacturing facility in Shiga Prefecture, Japan, which will increase the company’s annual cell production output from 300 MW to 650 MW by 2012.
