"The Turkish solar market is developing rapidly, with grid parity expected as early as 2013 in some areas of the country. We are convinced that Turkey has the potential to become an important growth market for the photovoltaic industry in future. With this partnership with iRES Enerji and Mr Ugurels expertise, we are taking the steps now that will enable us to successfully implement projects in this country," commented Klaus Ullrich, Vice President International Sales at Phoenix Solar AG.
Initial negotiations are underway for 500 kilowatts projects. No legal permits are needed for installations up to this figure as Phoenix Solar states. The company intends to support iRES Enerji in such PV activities and play an active part as sole partner in the realisation of solar installations.
"We chose Phoenix Solar as our partner because the company has extensive expertise and an outstanding reputation in the PV sector. Phoenix Solar also operates internationally, and as an independent system integrator it can offer the products and services that the Turkish solar market needs, responded Ugurel.
