German photovoltaic (PV) systems provider IBC Solar AG said Wednesday it has finalised a 1.114-MWp solar power project in Turkey for domestic sector investor FIT Enerji Yatirimlari AS.
The company’s local unit IBC Solar Turkey served as the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor for the project. It equipped the photovoltaic (PV) system with 4,400 of its 260-W polycrystalline IBC PolySol CS ValueAdded modules along with 17 of German solar power equipment specialist SMA Solar Technology AG’s (ETR:S92) 60-kW string inverters.
The solar park is located near Kayseri province’s village of Guzel Oz, according to the press release. It is expected to feed 1.8 GWh of electricity into the public power grid during its first year of operation, while receiving a feed-in tariff (FiT) of 0.133 USD/kWh (EUR 0.126) for 10 years. IBC Solar will continue to provide the maintenance, servicing and monitoring services for the array.
IBC Solar Turkey currently has a pipeline of 50 MW and plans 100 MW more for the next two years. “We are convinced that the way has been paved for Turkey to become the next important growth market for photovoltaics in Europe,” general manager, Hakan Daltaban, noted.
