Solar Frontier Europe, a subsidiary of the world’s largest CIS solutions provider, has signed a 23 MW module supply agreement with Konar Energy of Turkey at Solarex 2015 in Istanbul. The parent company said it will be supplying its proprietary CIS thin-film modules, manufactured in Japan, for five upcoming solar power plants in Turkey.

Module shipments for two projects, a 5.9 MW installation in Konya and a 4.7 MW installation in Burdur, will commence shortly, the press release said. The three remaining projects, which are all located in the south of Turkey, are set to follow by late 2016.

“The ability of Solar Frontier’s CIS modules to yield more electricity than crystalline silicon modules, especially in challenging conditions such as the high temperatures of Turkey, combined with the company’s high-quality manufacturing process and its reputation for continuous support, were all deciding factors for us,” said Tolga Özdemir, CEO of Konar Energy.

Solar Frontier’s CIS modules generate more electricity (kilowatt-hours per kilowatt-peak) compared to crystalline silicon modules in real-world environments, the company said.
