IBC Solar AG has completed the construction of a 3.43 MWp solar power plant in the Turkish province of Nigde in southern Anatolia. The plant will produce an estimated six million kilowatt hours (kWh) of solar power a year using 13,200 modules which will be fed into the national power grid.

IBC Solar’s subsidiary in Turkey completed the entire project for the investor Akim Elektronik from the project design, commissioning of the plant, installation of a power transmission line, a remote energy monitoring system and the organizing of operation and maintenance services. The investor also signed a ten year contract with a second operation and maintenance company which will provide maintenance and repair services.

Akim Elektronik owner Hasan Duru said at the handover ceremony that IBC SOLAR is one of the most reliable EPC companies in the solar market in Turkey and Germany – in both, technical and commercial respects.

IBC SOLAR Turkey General Manager Bülent Yildiz said the good solar irradiation values in the Nigde region are a guarantee of maximum production levels. He said the estimated production level of six million kWh of solar power a year will prevent the release of around 4.000 tons of CO2.

Nigde, is the third large-scale project, which IBC SOLAR Turkey has commissioned since the beginning of this year, the company said in a statement.

The two previously completed projects in Gaziantep (5.9 MWp) and Eskişehir (1.1 MWp) have become operational and two other plants in Izmir (4.2 MWp) and Adana (4.8 MWp) are expected to go online soon.

IBC SOLAR Turkey said it has a large number of local franchise partners across the country allowing it to undertake several projects at the same time and guarantee maintenance work following completion.

“Our project pipeline, which started mid-2016, stands at more than 100 MWp. We have already commissioned 40 MWp and will continue to work on other projects this year”, said Hakan Daltaban, Managing Partner of IBC SOLAR Turkey.
