KYOCERA supplies solar modules for Toyota marine boats
Kyocera Corp. announced that the company has started supplying solarmodules for "Toyota Solar Panels," which are to be installed inrecreational boats manufactured and sold by Toyota Motor Corp.. ToyotaSolar Panels can also be installed as an optional unit on recreationalboats manufactured by other companies.
This solar module will beexhibited in the Kyocera booth at PV Japan 2010, the solar energy tradeexhibition, held at Pacifico Yokohama, Japan from June 30 through July2, 2010.
Electricity generated by the solar modules can be usedto charge a battery to provide a supplemental, durable power source forthe various electronics and appliances installed on recreational boats.In addition to reducing CO2 emissions, the solar charging systemprevents a battery from deteriorating during extended periods of non-use while docked.
This new marine application follows theintroduction of Kyocera solar modules as an optional feature on theToyota Prius beginning in May 2009.
For this product, Kyocera has implemented strict quality control measures, with rigorous testing toconfirm heat resistance, vibration resistance, shock resistance andother evaluations to ensure reliability. Furthermore, Kyocera hasestablished a dedicated production line with specialized engineers toensure thorough control of the manufacturing process.
As a leader in solar energy since 1975, Kyocera will apply its extensive R&Dresources to further enhance the quality of its solar cells and moduleswhile exploring new applications for clean, renewable solar energytechnology.
