Princess Elisabeth Antarctica First Zero-emission research station to be equipped with Kyocera solar modules!


The Belgian “Princess Elisabeth” station, to be built in Antarctica by the International Polar Foundation during the summer season 2007-2008, sets out to be the first ever zero-emission research station. The “Princess Elisabeth” Station will be equipped with 408 Kyocera solar modules. The “Princess Elisabeth” research station will be exposed to the extreme Antarctic conditions, with temperatures going as low as minus 60 degrees Celsius and wind speeds reaching 250 km/h. Such conditions demand a reliable energy supply. In order to achieve this in a zero-emission context, 120 solar modules of the type KC130GHT-2 from Kyocera are being installed on the building. Further 288 free-standing modules around the station are to follow. Together with eight wind turbines, the Kyocera photovoltaic plant will generate a total of 98.6 kilowatt hours, used to power communication infrastructure, heating and electronics.
