IBC Solar, Turkey, has commissioned a turn-key solar energy project with a capacity of 1.161 MWp in Merkez, near the Bulgarian border. The ground-mounted plant has been given to Edirne Giyim Sanayi, a leading textile company in Turkey. The PV plant, meant to fulfill the company's electricity needs, can meet 70 per cent of its energy demand.
IBC Solar Turkey is the Turkish subsidiary of IBC Solar, a leader in photovoltaic systems and energy storage.
With the completion and handover of the PV plant in mid-August 2018, IBC Solar Turkey finished another large-scale PV project, which is used for the commercial direct-consumption of solar energy. Regarding increasing prices for electricity, the investment in PV power plants with a self-consumption model becomes more and more attractive amongst Turkish companies.
The project's design and installation – including project preparation, material selection and project procurement – was carried out by IBC Solar Turkey. In the plant, 4,224 polycrystalline modules are expected to produce 1.6 million kilowatt hours per year and to prevent 916 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. The solar energy covers about 70 per cent of the company’s total energy demand. (SV)
