Trina Solar Ltd, operating internationally in sectors of photovoltaic modules, solutions and services, announced that it has signed an agreement to supply 40 MW of solar modules to Tegnatia, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors. The partnership will bolster Trina’s innovative solar solutions as both companies expand presence in Turkey’s market.
Under the agreement, Trina Solar will complete the delivery of its TSM-PD05 (polycrystalline, 60 cells) and TSM-PD14 (polycrystalline, 72 cells) modules by the end of the second quarter. The modules will be used in a range of solar projects in the areas of Mersin, Adana, Konya and Erzurum. Established in 2013, Tegnatia is a joint venture between T-Dinamik, Turkish renewable energy investment firm which has funded large-scale solar parks in Turkey, Greece and Romania; and Egnatia Group, a Greek construction company operating in Eastern Europe and the United Kingdom. Tegnatia is committed to offering turnkey services covering the design, implementation and maintenance of medium- to large-scale solar parks, with a core aim of bringing solar power to a wider section of the Turkish population, Trina said.
“We have ambitious targets to bring the benefits of high-quality solar PV to a wider range of Turkish companies and consumers, which requires a strong and reliable partner that can provide the quality of product and service that these projects demand. In addition, we were looking for a partner that can provide support locally, as and when required,” said Mustafa Tırıs, general manager at Tegnatia.
