German system integrator Belectric’s Turkish joint venture has secured its first tenders in the country after gaining approval for two large-scale ground-mounted solar projects from Turkish Electricity Transmission Co. (TEIAŞ), Pv-tech.org reported.

Belectric Kuloğlu has successfully tendered for projects which will have a combined AC connection capacity of 32.4 MW – 14 percent of the total capacity tendered in the bidding round – and the company said it intends to compete for further tender requests from TEIAŞ in the coming months.

The JV has partnered with domestic groups Gün Güneş Enerjisi Elektrik Üretim San. Ve Tic. A.Ş. and Ra Güneş Enerjisi Elektrik Üretim San. Ve Tic. A.Ş for the tenders and Cenap Kuloğlu, managing director at Belectric Kuloğlu, said the results confirmed its “continuing market leadership” in solar project development.

“We are proud of winning these tenders, which allow us to gain entry to the Turkish market. Our declared objective is to become the leading system integrator and O&M expert for our partners in Turkey,” said Bernhard Beck, executive chairman at Belectric.

Turkey’s Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources revealed in February that it was targeting to achieve 5 GW of installed PV by 2023 as part of a new renewable energy strategy developed in collaboration with Deloitte and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
