August 20 (Renewables Now) - German photovoltaic (PV) systems specialist IBC Solar AG said on Monday that its Turkish subsidiary has switched on a 1.16-WMp solar power facility in Merkez, northwestern Turkey.

The investor in the project is Turkish textile manufacturer Edirne Giyim Sanayi. It will use the electricity from the ground-mounted solar plant to cover around 70% of its power consumption.

The photovoltaic (PV) system, located in Edirne province near the Bulgarian border, uses 4,224 polycrystalline modules, expected to generate about 1.6 million kWh of electricity per year and thus save some 916 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. IBC Solar Turkey was in charge of the overall project design and installation, including preparation activities, material selection and project procurement.

The German solar project developer noted that investment in self-consumption solar plants becomes “more and more attractive” among Turkish companies.
