German solar system integrator Phoenix Solar AG said it will build four solar power plants with a total capacity of 4.9 MW in Turkey in partnership with Asunim Yenilenebilir Enerji Teknolojileri, SeeNews reported. The companies have been jointly awarded the contract by a Turkish governmental enterprise.
The solar arrays, which will use Jinko polycrystalline solar modules and SMA inverters, will be located in the İncesu Industrial Zone in Kayseri, central Anatolia. The power generated will be sold to the grid. Phoenix Solar will be responsible for all the engineering and procurement work, while Asunim, which has already conducted the earlier project development, will do the actual construction.
Klaus Friedl, head for Middle East at Phoenix, said that in cooperation with strategic partner Asunim, the company now had power plants totalling almost 13 MW under construction in Turkey. “We see this new project along with a promising sales pipeline as an excellent basis to further grow our activities in the entire region,” he added.
