IBC SOLAR Turkey, a subsidiary of global leader in photovoltaic (PV) systems and energy storage IBC SOLAR AG, has completed a large-scale solar energy project with a total capacity of 1.1 MWp in Eskişehir, Turkey. The produced amount of approx. 1.7 million kWh solar power per year will be fed into the public grid. As the Turkish feed-in tariff for photovoltaic currently stands at 13.3 USD cents per kWh, the project guarantees attractive revenue for the investor, Sarar & Ilgazlar Partnership. Turkey’s physical and climate conditions, such as the high insolation values comparable to the values in Spain, are additionally very suitable for solar power. The PV system in Eskişehir is one of the biggest projects completed by IBC SOLAR Turkey in 2016.
“IBC SOLAR AG and IBC SOLAR Turkey are bringing valuable global experience and extensive knowledge in the planning and installation of large-scale projects to the Turkish PV market. I would like to say thank you to our investor Sarar & Ilgazlar Partnership for choosing IBC Solar Turkey for this project and their contributions to the growth of the PV industry in our country”, says IBC SOLAR General Manager and Managing Partner Hakan Daltaban.
IBC SOLAR will also provide operations and maintenance services (O&M) for the PV plant. “O&M services are vital for the long term performance of PV power plants, the compliance with the targeted productivity levels and the continuous return of investment under all climate conditions. Thus, our O&M services are increasingly preferred by our investors and customers”, says IBC SOLAR Turkey General Manager Bülent Yildiz. IBC SOLAR Turkey is collaborating with its local franchise partner Demir Engineering for an effective post-implementation support and service of the system in Eskişehir. The standard service package includes plant monitoring, troubleshooting support and preventive maintenance services, as well as green space maintenance and reporting. IBC SOLAR can also provide an optional performance guarantee for the complete PV system.
