Neuss, Germany — Kyocera has supplied modules for a PV plant in the Czech Republic. Covering an area of more than 28,000 square-meters, the plant has a installed capacity of 1.2 megawatts (MW).
The plant was installed in the South Moravian farming village of Moravský Žižkov. The system includes 8,960 Kyocera KD135GH-2PU solar modules. A high annual electricity yield of 1.3 million kilowatt hours is expected from the plant, which was completed in December 2009 and only recently commissioned. Kyocera said durable and efficient high-yield solar modules are of great importance, especially for large-scale plants.
Nelumbo, the company that developed the project 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.
