At about 5:00 on September 9, the strong typhoon "Faxi" landed in Chiba Prefecture, Japan. The maximum wind speed near the center was 40 meters per second, and the instantaneous maximum wind speed reached 57.5 meters per second. Affected by the typhoon, the largest floating photovoltaic power station in Japan, located in Ichihara City, Chiba Prefecture, may suddenly catch fire due to strong winds around 1:00 p.m., causing a large number of solar panels to be damaged.
The Japan Broadcasting Association (NHK) reported that the largest floating solar panel in Japan, located in Ichihara, Chiba Prefecture, suddenly caught fire this afternoon, and the fire department rushed to the scene after being notified. Firefighters concluded that the fire may have been caused by strong winds brought by Faqian, which caused the solar panels to heat up and burn.
The project is located in the Yamagura Dam in Chiba County, with a scale of 13.744MW. It has been connected to the grid since March 2018. It is currently the largest floating photovoltaic power station in Japan. According to the pictures on the site, it can be seen that a large number of components were still blown over due to the strong wind of the typhoon.
MiaSolé flexible components also located in Chiba Prefecture, the center of the typhoon, were laid on the cement roof by pasting, and withstood the test of the super typhoon "Faxi", and the entire project was intact. The customer of this project is EG Japan Company in Chiba Prefecture, Japan. It was laid in February 2016 and lasted for more than three years. The operation is in good condition, maintaining the consistent high efficiency and excellent quality of MiaSolé
MiaSoléThe latest generation of FLEX-03W modules uses thin film solar technology that holds the record for the highest conversion efficiency on the market today, with a mass production conversion rate of over 17%, and can be customized in a variety of sizes, so it can provide an effective energy solution for any application scenario. Solution. The MiaSolé component is very soft, with a thickness of only 1.5 mm, and can be directly adhered to any surface, not only will not damage the body of the sticker, greatly reducing maintenance costs, but also not easy to break, effectively resistant to harsh environments. MiaSolé adopts The flexible solar modules produced by proprietary technology and flexible application methods provide unlimited application scenarios for the construction, transportation and portable solar energy markets.
According to the authoritative test of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems in Germany, the effective conversion efficiency of MiaSolé's commercial-sized flexible solar cell modules (lighting area of 1.08 square meters) reached 17.44%. This achievement has been included in the authoritative photovoltaic academic journal "Photovoltaic Progress" (Photovoltaic Progress), and has been identified as a new world record for the power generation efficiency of large-area CIGS modules (Prog Photovoltaic Res Appl. 2019; 27: 565-575) In addition, according to the authoritative test of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) of the United States, MiaSolé stainless steel substrate thin film solar chip (0.86 square centimeter) has a conversion efficiency of 20.56%, which continues to maintain the world's leading level.
