Yingli Green Energy will supply 30 MW of multicrystalline PV modules to Turkey’s Tekno Ray Solar.

In a deal between Yingli’s Turkish subsidiary, Yingli Turkey, and Tekno Ray Solar, 30 MW of Yingli Solar modules will be delivered in installments from the second quarter of 2014 through the first quarter of 2015. The YGE Series modules will be installed in several large-scale solar projects in southern Turkey.

"In Turkey, which has Europe’s richest solar resources, we believe that we need to utilize the sun in order to contribute to both the economy and the environment," said Altay Coskunoglu, chairman of Tekno Ray Solar parent group Tekno Company Union.

"We selected Yingli Solar because of the company’s strong brand and high-performance, high-quality product."

Dimitrios Bachadakis, Yingli’s managing director for South East Europe, said, "Establishing partnerships with Turkey’s leading PV project investors is a key driver of our strategy."

Yingli chairman and CEO Liansheng Miao said the group looked forward to enhancing its presence "in this high-potential solar energy market."

Miao added that Yingli and Tekno Ray Solar had partnered on many past projects, including Turkey’s first medium voltage ground-mounted project in megawatt size with grid connection and the first self-consumption project in the Akdeniz region.
