Chinese module and solar cell manufacturer CSUN has announced this week the signing of a framework agreement that sees the company supply 50 MW of its products to Turkish PV projects owned by KosiFrankensolar.
A subsidiary of Germany's Frankensolar group, KosiFrankensolar has worked in Europe's PV distribution sector for more than 20 years, and has this year turned its attentions to the potential of the Turkish market.
The framework agreement commits CSUN to the supply of 50 MW of the companys high efficient polycrystalline modules throughout the remainder of 2014, for installation at a variety of solar PV parks and projects throughout the country.
The chief focus of KosiFrankensolar is the residential rooftop market and smaller scale ground mount sector two segments of Turkey's solar PV industry that do not require licensing from the government (provided each installation is no more than 1 MW in capacity), and thus are easier to pursue along a smoother, quicker timescale.
"From early on, we have been working with KosiFrankensolar in Turkey and consider then an extremely capable partner for mutually taking advantage of this booming solar market within the vicinity of the European pioneer markets," said CSUN CEO Stephen Cai.
Turkey's PV aspirations have been steered into the fast lane in recent months by a handful of local companies bringing expertise and top quality solar equipment into the country. Just last week, as revealed exclusively by pv magazine at Intersolar Europe, Halk Enerji signed a MoU with South Korea's Hanwha SolarOne for the supply of its high efficient modules for a 5 MW solar PV plant in the Turkish city of Erzurum.
