Asunim completes provisional acceptance on Turkey’s biggest conglomerate of industrial solar rooftop systems


Asunim Turkey is a highly active and consistent company in the Turkish solar market with further projects in their implementation phase.

The dedicated international industrial rooftop team of Asunim has a long track record of successful systems design and implementation and is proud to add this big reference to its EPC and Operation and Maintenance portfolio.

Founding Partner and General Manager of Asunim Turkey, Mr. Umut Gurbuz stated “We would like to express our gratitude to the many individual investors who put their trust in us on these projects. Rooftop systems are quite complex in their overall requirements and more engineering skills and know-how are necessary to reach performance at maximum potential when compared to ground-mounted Solar Power Plants. We are delighted with the successful conclusion of this important milestone. It is an honour for us to complete such a spectacular project. Asunim already has installed several other large scale projects in six different industrial zones in Turkey – but due to the overall limitations of the non-licensed system sizes, never managed an installation job on this scale in just one location.”

The projects were installed in Kayseri’s Mimar Sinan Industrial Zone for several independent investors and the first phase of the 7.2 MW, 3.9 MW is now successfully connected to the grid with a positive provisional acceptance. The other part of the systems is on track for acceptance and will follow shortly.

The installation was completed within five months and the total area of the rooftops are 43.500m2. The system is expected to generate electricity at a rate of 9.5 GWh per year in this location. The crystalline solar modules were supplied in part by CSUN Turkey and Jinko Solar from China, the solar inverters were supplied by SMA from Germany.

Asunim is currently one of the leading EPC companies for industrial solar rooftop systems in Turkey with a total of 20 MW implemented so far, and has a separate department specialized in ground mounted systems with a current track record of 110 MW.
