Upsolar wins contract for solar PV project in Turkey

Provider of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules Upsolar has been awarded a contract by HilvanEnerji to supply panels for a 23.6MW solarfarm in Sanliurfa, Turkey.

Provider of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules Upsolar has been awarded a contract by HilvanEnerji to supply panels for a 23.6MW solarfarm in Sanliurfa, Turkey.

Once in operation, power generated by the facility will be able to provide sufficient electricity for approximately 17,500 households in the region. Construction will begin in a few months.

The plant will be equipped with 87,630 Upsolar UP-M270P modules. This system can generate approximately 40GWh and save up to 20,000 tonnes of CO2 annually.

Upsolar Group's director Turkey and Middle East Ioannis Markatatos said: "This project not only paints a bright future for Upsolar but also for Turkey and the Middle East as both regions continue to ramp-up their solar energy capacity.

"This project not only paints a bright future for Upsolar but also for Turkey and the Middle East."

"With our huge success in Turkey, we are confident and optimistic about our outlook in the region as we continue our expansion into the Middle East and we see this as a sign of more things to come."

At the beginning of last year, the company supplied solar panels for an 18.7MW project as part of a 40MW solar module sales agreement.

Last December, Upsolar's subsidiaries Koine, and CW, deployed a large floating PV system at Tengeh Reservoir in Singapore. Koine is a design company specialising in floating technology, while CW is Upsolar’s installation partner in Singapore.

This system is part of the joint project overseen by the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS), spearheaded by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and PUB, Singapore’s national water agency, as part of the country's green initiatives to assess the viability of using floating PV systems.
