JinkoSolar, a global player in the photovoltaic (PV) industry, announced that it has supplied 42 MW of solar modules to Asunim Yenilenebilir Enerji Teknolojileri Ins. Muh. San. Tic. Ltd. (Asunim), for use in two PV power plants implemented by Asunim in Izmir Province, southwest Turkey.
Asunim has started construction of the 20 MW and 22 MW plants with preliminary ministry acceptance. Featuring high irradiation values and stable grid conditions, the two main sites combined will generate around 56 GWh/year upon grid connection scheduled for summer 2017, avoiding around 40,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually. JinkoSolar delivered high-efficiency PID free solar modules to the two solar plants.
Umut Gurbuz, managing partner for Asunim Turkey, underlined: “Our excellent five year track record as EPC and Developer in Turkey shows that we are able to deliver high quality systems within budget and contractual deadlines. We are very proud of having been contracted for these two large projects and will install and maintain these systems in accordance with Turkish law and best industry standards. These systems contribute to consolidate and increase Asunim’s considerable references for large scale PV systems.”
Frank Niendorf, General Manager of JinkoSolar Europe, commented: “This is another successful project, which we highly appreciate to realize with our reliable partner Asunim and it is one of the biggest projects in Turkey. Asunim is recognized by big investors for their excellent quality standards, which fits perfectly to JinkoSolar’s philosophy to offer best-in-class efficiency modules at a competitive value.”
