Axitec GmbH and B&W Energy GmbH & Co. KG from Germany seek to jointly set up photovoltaic plants in Turkey with a total output of initially 25 MW. The plants are due to be built by the end of the year, Exitec said. B&W Energy and its Turkish joint venture B&W Enerji Türkiye in Kayseri act as general contractors. B&W Energy Türkiye has been active in the market since 2013, the press release said.
All plants will be equipped with Axitec’s high-capacity solar modules AXIpower AC-260P/156-60S. “We are happy that B&W Energy chose the solar modules of Axitec for these important projects. This decision was basically made because of the service Axitec offers its customers in Turkey with the new branch in Istanbul,” says Axitec’s chief executive Steffen Wiedmann. Josef Busch, managing partner of B&W Energy, added that both companies would complement each other very well in the “quality-conscious and brand-conscious Turkish market”.
