In Turkey, the Süper Lig is growing and TOKI, the governmental agency for housing, is building a stadium in Antalya in cooperation with the Ministry of Youth and Sports. Total cost is almost TRY 80 million (EUR 25 million), and 5% is for a 1,4 MW solar plant project, which will take almost six years to return the investment. Omron Corporation from Kyoto, Japan, said it will supply 124 string inverters KP100L.

The sports facility has a capacity of nearly 33.000 covered seats. Designed by Azaksu Architects, it includes a solar plant on its 10.000 square metres rooftop area, to help general profitability selling energy to the grid. The project of the plant has been carried by Seiso, one of the leading suppliers in the Turkish photovoltaic market, the press release said.

The plant, with 5,600 JA Solar’s mono-crystalline modules, has one of the highest capacities of solar power generation in stadiums, aiming to apply for Guinness Records, Omron said. Annual yield expectation is 2.15 GWh, and it will be connected on grid to sell electricity as two times 700 kW of non-licenced application for 10 years over feed-in tariffs, Omron added.

Because of the full cylindric form of the stadium, each panel line is exposed to sunlight from a different angle. In order to obtain maximum performance, the system is made of small pieces, each one with a 10 kW inverter. Omron Corporation supplies products and services for industrial automation, electronic and healthcare.
