Turkish EPC company Asunim Yenilenebilir Enerji Teknolojileri announced it has commenced construction work on two large non-licensed solar photovoltaic (PV) projects in Turkey’s Izmir province, totalling 42 MW.
More specifically, the member of the Asunim Group is building one 20-MWp plant and a 22-MWp for several investors, with a preliminary approval from the Turkish Electricity Distribution Co (TEDAS).
Asunim is using solar modules made by China’s JinkoSolar Holding (NYSE:JKS) and string inverters supplied by REFUsol.
The plants are expected to enter into service in the summer of 2017. Their annual production is estimated at about 56 GWh. Asunim noted that those two PV projects are the largest ones implemented in Turkey by the company to date. The group also has units in Portugal and the UK and further business in Egypt, Chile and Spain.
