The Japanese company Kyocera has announced the provision of photovoltaic modules destined for the international airport of the Republic of Palau, a country in Oceania, located in Micronesia.

Located about 800 km east of the Philippines, the solar power plant with a capacity of 226.8 kilowatts become the largest of its kind, the island state.

Kyocera and Wakachiku Construction participated in the design and implementation of the proposed solar parking. It was funded through official development assistance (ODA) provided by the Japanese government, which aims to contribute to the growth of the country.

The solar modules are installed on the parking shade structures. This solar integrated building which consists of 1,080 Kyocera solar modules, a power of 210 watts, remains the first country to be connected to the network.

Moreover, because of the high frequency of typhoons on the island, the back of the modules has been strengthened by support bars to improve the resistance to wind pressure.

The system is designed to produce an annual output of 250 MWh, the environmental gain is approximately 80 tonnes of CO2 per year.
