11.6.2003: Meldung: Kyocera (Tianjin) Solar Energy to Produce in China

Kyocera Corporation (President: Yasuo Nishiguchi) has announced that the production of solar modules will commence in the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area from October this year, with the approval by the Chinese Tianjin government to establish a solar cell production/sales company, Kyocera (Tianjin) Solar Energy Co., Ltd.

 

The new company, Kyocera (Tianjin) Solar Energy Co., Ltd., is a joint venture funded by Kyocera Corporation and Chinese Tianjin Yiqing Group (Holding Share) Co., Ltd. (President: Lin Yongning). The business includes the development, design and manufacture of solar modules and systems, and the sales, construction, maintenance and after-sales services of solar power generation systems in China.

 

Currently, Japanese solar cell makers hold approximately a half share of the total shipments worldwide, playing a leading role in the market. Kyocera is the first Japanese company to establish production facilities in China. In addition, the plant is the first solar cell production site that Kyocera has established overseas. The production scale in this plant is expected to reach 12MW per year by the end of 2004, the largest capacity in China today.

 

By establishing a new production site, Kyocera will continue to promote the solar energy business worldwide, including China, where significant market growth can be expected in the future.

Kyocera Solar Energy Business

 

As a pioneer of solar cells, Kyocera has been actively engaged in research and development since 1975, and has contributed to the spread and development of solar cells. In 1986 we became the first in the world to launch the mass production of polycrystalline silicon solar cells using a casting technique, which is mainstream today. Until now, Kyocera has used its technology and development expertise to support the highest rate of conversion efficiency in polycrystalline silicon, and has used its experience to introduce the technology to all parts of the world.

We also conduct business from start to finish, including not only the manufacture, sales, construction and after-sales service, but also the production of the silicon wafers used in solar cells. The production volume in the 2002 calendar year was 60 MW per year, and the production scale will reach 80 MW by the end of 2003, and 100 MW by the end of 2004.

 

In October 1985, Kyocera donated a solar power generation system to a village in Lanzhou, Gansu, China where no electricity was available. The solar power generation system has the ability to generate approx. 10 kW of power, and was used for domestic lighting. Subsequently, from 1997 to 1999, the company delivered solar power generation systems to eight facilities, including schools and hospitals in remote regions, such as Tibet and the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, as part of the joint research project between NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization) and China. National projects have been launched in China, including the "Illumination Project" in the western regions, the project for electrifying villages where no electricity is available, Beijing Olympics scheduled to be held in 2008, and Shanghai World Expo scheduled for 2010. As a pioneer of solar systems, Kyocera will actively participate in the projects for introducing clean energies in parallel with these movements.

 

Tianjin Yiqing Group

 

The precursor is a state-owned company management department of the Tianjin First Light Industry Bureau. In 1995, the organization became a holding company owned by Tianjin government. The Group has 96 state-owned companies and 64 joint ventures, and the number of employees is approx. 60,000 people. The total assets of the Group are 11.2 billion yuan. Currently, the Group produces and sells a wide range of products, such as precise processing machines, packaging machines, sewing machines for industrial use, watches, food and drink, and cosmetics. Also the Group is a partner of the joint venture Kyocera (Tianjin) Sales and Trading Corporation, Kyocera"s general sales company in China.
