IBC Solar AG has completed the installation of a 3.43-MWp photovoltaic (PV) project in the province of Nigde, central Turkey, the German company said on Tuesday.
IBC Solar Turkey was in charge of project design, plant, commissioning, installation of the power transmission line and a remote monitoring system. The solar project developer and contractor will also deliver operations and maintenance (O&M) services for the plant owned by Turkish firm Akim Elektronik.
The Nigde PV park is expected to generate about six million kWh of electricity, which will help offset around 4,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually. IBC Solar noted that an unnamed company will help with the O&M works under a 10-year contract.
Since the beginning of 2017, IBC Solar Turkey has commissioned 10.4-MW of solar plants, Nigde included, and will soon put on stream an additional 9 MW of capacity. The company noted it has brought online 40 MWp of solar parks as part of an over-100-MWp project pipeline, started in the middle of 2016, with the rest of the capacity seen to be commissioned by end-2017.
