April 9 (Renewables Now) – German company IBC Solar AG on Thursday announced the commissioning of a 11.4-MWp photovoltaic (PV) plant in southern Turkey.

IBC Solar’s Turkish unit was responsible for the design and installation of the park, with the participation of Turkish and German engineers. Germany’s Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE delivered technical supervision services for the project, while Deloitte provided commercial consulting during the tender phase.

The ground-mounted plant, which IBC Solar says is one of the largest ones in Turkey, is situated in the province of Mersin on the Mediterranean coast. It is anticipated to generate about 17 million kWh of electricity per year, thus offsetting around 11,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, IBC Solar estimates.

In January, IBC Solar put on stream a 4.24-MWp rooftop PV array for Turkish agricultural commodity trading company Tiryaki Agro.
