Sanyo instals mock-up solar system in Trakhees
Dubai, June 3, 2010
Sanyo and its solar system integrator partner Value Addition, have installed a mock-up solar system in Trakhees-Environment, Health and Safety (EHS), the regulatory arm of Trakhees - Ports, Customs & Free Zone Corporation (PCFC), Dubai.
The 2kWp hybrid photovoltaic system, which includes Sanyo’s HIT (heterojunction with intrinsic thin layer) technology panel HIP-205 NKHB1-H range, in combination with high efficiency solar inverter from SMA Solar Germany, will be used to power the entire reception area at EHS using solar energy.
In addition to the entire reception area lighting, the photovoltaic system installed at Trakhees-EHS will power two LCD televisions at the reception, the main conference room lighting and also the LCD projector at the conference hall, which together is expected to result in 2400 kWh of savings on electricity per annum and approximately 1300 kg of carbon dioxide emission savings annually.
“With its high energy conversion ratio, the system offers the world’s highest efficiency output, and we are certain that Trakhees-EHS will soon achieve significant savings in energy,” stated Takashi Hirao, chief regional officer for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Sanyo Gulf.
Sanyo’s HIT photovoltaic modules are based on thin mono crystalline silicon wafers surrounded by ultra-thin amorphous silicon layers to deliver greater conversion efficiency, outstanding temperature characteristics and higher output power on a given roof area compared to conventional crystalline modules.-TradeArabia News Service
