Kyoto / Neuss, 21 July 2010 – The Japanese technology corporation Kyocera, one of the leading manufacturers in the field of photovoltaics, is aiming to expand its project business in the future. Acting as the main contractor in this pilot project with regional relevance, Kyocera has fitted out a grammar school in the state of Baden-Württemberg with a complete solar plant. It was completed in June 2010 and has an output of 130 kilowatts peak (kWp).
Kyocera as main contractor provided support for the OHG during the planning and assumed control of the material supplies as well as execution of the project. For the future, the company has set itself the target of providing greater support for the implementation of solar projects, above all for partners from the region.
In close coordination with the project partner, Kyocera is fulfilling individual customer demands for sustainability with tailor-made solutions, while at the same time guaranteeing the respective target margins. “Kyocera sees itself as a quality supplier and this aspect also guides our selection of project partners,” says Dr Stefan Wiebach, European Product Line Manager at Kyocera.
In this way, photovoltaic plants from the premium segment are adapted precisely to customer requirements and handed over on schedule as turnkey solutions.
Top quality in modules and project management
Kyocera is a front runner in the solar energy market and began to develop solar cells in 1975. The company has therefore gathered many years of experience and established a close link to the solar industry. In its production, Kyocera attaches particular importance to covering the entire value-added chain itself, starting with the processing of the raw material through to module production, and thus guaranteeing quality and performance of the modules.
