Solimpeks working on 500 kW Turkish PV plant


The Turkish solar company is in the process of installing a 500 kW photovoltaic plant on the roof of Mercan Mermer’s factory building, located in Burdur, in the south of Turkey.

The plant is expected to comprise 2,120 Panasonic HIT photovoltaic modules when complete, scheduled for early May. The necessary inverters will be supplied by Power One.

"This project represents an exciting evolution for both Solimpeks and the Turkish PV market," writes the company in a statement released.

2013 is expected to be a "critical" year for the Turkish solar industry, as it gears up to distribute photovoltaic production licenses for projects larger than 1 MW this June. A total of 600 MW worth of licenses are planned to be awarded by the end of the year; and 70 MW of new photovoltaic capacity added.
