Kyocera Supplies Solar Powered Generators to Medical Facility in Tajikistan

Kyocera Corporation, as well as Marubeni Corporation and Marubeni Protechs Corportation, yesterday announced that they provided solar-powered generators to the Diakov and Research Institution of Obstetrics Gynecology (OB/GYN) and Perinatology in Dushanbi, which is the capital of the Republic of Tajikistan.

This is the very first solar power system that Kyocera has installed in Tajikistan, and it has the capacity to generate 160 kW (160,000 watts) of electricity. The Diakov Hospital’s system is 120 kW, and the OBG/GYN institution’s is 40 kW.

The systems are expected to generate approximately 196 MWh of electricity annually, which would offset the production of 62 tonnes of CO2 each year.

The project is being funded by the Japanese government’s ODA (Official Development Assistance) program to help augment Tajikistan’s power production and diversify its energy sources.

Another example of a Kyocera ODA is one in 1984 to provide Pakistan with a solar power plant. Since 1984, Kyocera has been involved in more than 40 ODA projects in Asia and Africa, which total 3 MW (3,000 kW) of power capacity.
