MinebeaMitsumi Installs Solar Systems at Cebu Plant

MinebeaMitsumi Inc. has installed self-consumption solar power generation systems made by Sharp Corporation on the premises of MITSUMI Cebu plant (located in Danao City, Cebu Island, Republic of the Philippines). By having the systems, we expect to reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 6,833t/year (equivalent) at the Cebu plant alone.

The output of the solar power generation systems is approximately 7.9 MW-dc and this is the largest capacity for self-consumption type solar power generation systems installed at a Japanese company’s factory in the Republic of the Philippines. Estimated annual power generation amount is approximately 12,806 MWh/year and this is equivalent to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of approximately 6,833tCO2/year. The electricity generated will be used within the Cebu plant, contributing to the reduction of grid power usage.
This is the third location where we install large-scale solar power generation systems after two production plants in Thailand (Bang Pa-in Plant and Lopburi Plant).

Today on October 19, we held an opening ceremony of solar panel completion at our Cebu plant inviting Mr. Hon. Thomas Mark “Mix” Durano of the City Mayor of Danao, Dr. Ceferino S. Rodolfo, Undersecretary, Industry Development and Trade(DTI) Policy Vice Chairman and Managing Head, Board of Investments, and Mr. Hideyuki Inada, Chief Executive Officer of Sharp Solar Solution Asia Co.,Ltd.
From MinebeaMitsumi, Tatsuya Mori, Executive Officer, General Manager of Regional Affairs for Philippines and Kosuke Hirano, Managing Executive Officer also attended the ceremony.

MinebeaMitsumi’s Cebu plant has continued to expand since it began operations in January 1989, and currently has approximately 20,000 employees, producing a wide range of products including semiconductors, camera actuators, and connectors.

Based on the Group’s Environmental Policy, MinebeaMitsumi is promoting a 30% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared with the fiscal year ended March 2021 by the fiscal year ending March 2031, and to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. In order to achieve these, we consider to take various initiatives, including the introduction of solar power generation systems at our company’s bases around the world and enhancing our initiatives on decarbonization and the reduction of environmental burden.

Aiming at our corporate philosophy “To contribute to realization of a sustainable, eco-friendly and prosperous society by providing better products, at a faster speed, in larger numbers, at a lower cost and by smarter means,” we will continue to strive to further expand the use of renewable energy and build a sustainable society.
