After a tentative start, the PV market in Turkey is starting to build up ahead of steam, and German company IBC Solar is making sure its well established in the country to take advantage of the trend. These 5 projects are being realized by regional subsidiary IBC Solar Turkey, who will be working on up to 15 sites simultaneously over the course of the year.
The 5 projects, which are already under construction, will have a combined capacity of 17.6 MW. They are spread out as followed: 6.4 MW in Gaziantep, 4.8 MW in Adana, 3.3 MW in Nigde, 2 MW in Izmir, and 1.1 MW in Eskisehir. A number of systems under 1 MW each will make up each project, to allow for simple grid connection.
As EPC partner, IBC Solar will be drawing upon its network of local franchise partners to complete the projects, but also to complete any maintenance work that needs to be done afterwards.
The news of IBC expanding its pipeline in Turkey comes as the country plans to add between 800 and 900 MW of PV capacity in 2016. This is a large leap from the 150 MW added in 2015, but IBC is confident that it will be able realize a decent proportion of this target.
We were able to fittingly expand our project pipeline by more than 100 MW, so that we are able to continue getting to work on new projects this year as well as next, said Hakan Daltaban, General Manager of IBC Solar Turkey. This fits into the companys current business strategy, as in April it announced that it will be focusing on emerging PV markets.
