Kyocera Corporation, along with the Marubeni and Marubeni Protechs corporations, have supplied 160 kW of solar systems to the Diakov Hospital and Research Institution of Obstetrics Gynecology and Perinatologyin Dushanbe in the capital city of the Republic of Tajikistan. The solar systems are Kyocera’s first installations in the country and will generate approximately 196MWh of annual electricity, offsetting roughly 62 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
The installations are funded by the Japanese government’s Official Development Assistance to help raise power generation capacity and diversify energy sources in Tajikistan. They are the country’s first grid-connected systems, comprised of 768 Kyocera 210-W solar modules in total.
In 1984, Kyocera provided solar power to a village in Pakistan 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 3MW of solar systems to countries in Asia and Africa. Kyocera remains committed to help solve global environmental issues including efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
