We are IT (WIT) Philippines, Inc., a Philippine-based satellite broadband service provider, and Eguchi Holdings Co., Ltd., a Japanese solar and wind energy developer, have joined forces to put up Fujisan Solar and Wind Energy Corporation, a company dedicated to developing the archipelago’s sustainable energy sector while providing advanced emergency communications equipment to disaster-struck areas.
“We are thrilled to launch this new joint venture with Eguchi Holdings, a company that shares our vision to provide effective and sustainable ways to drive economic growth in our respective countries. As we join forces and merge our expertise, we hope to come up with solutions that can help achieve a better and cleaner Philippines, and improve communications and emergency-response during disaster and calamities,” said Joseph Maddatu, COO of We Are IT Philippines, Inc. (WIT).
Fujisan will be providing Japanese-made solar panels, street lights, pumps, and plants designed to take advantage of the country’s tropical climate. The panels arrive with a 25-year linear power output warranty and a 10-year product warranty guaranteeing investors maximum peace of mind.
Meanwhile, WIT will be offering the country’s first fully outsourced and managed emergency response and communication vehicle called WIT’s Emergency Response Vehicles (WERV). This vehicle uses solar panels and diesel fuel for power and allows disconnected areas to re-establish their communication system.
The WERV is capable of deployment within 15 minutes of arrival in the affected area. It carries broadband satellite communications, ultra range Wi-Fi service, HD CCTV, VHF and UHF radios, video conferencing, digital terrestrial television broadcast, VOIP, Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), and is able to broadcast HD quality video for Satellite News Gathering. The WERV runs on an Internet Protocol for wider interoperability.
“The birth of Fujisan marks the dawn of a renewed future. Through Fujisan’s renewable energy and superior communication technology solutions, we look forward to bringing new investments, better opportunities and better solutions that will improve the lives of Filipinos all over the country,” added Jose Maddatu, Chairman of Fujisan.
