Trina Solar Limited today announced that it has signed an agreement to supply 40MW of solar modules to Tegnatia. This partnership will enable Trina Solar to supply Tegnatia with its solar PV solutions as companies expand their presence in the Turkish 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 of 2016. The modules will be used in a range of solar projects in the areas of Mersin, Adana, Konya and Erzurum.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mustafa Tiris, General Manager at Tegnatia, commented: "We are delighted to partner with Trina Solar, a global solar energy leader. 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. Trina Solar represents the ideal fit to help bring these projects to fruition."
Mr. Rongfang Yin, Assistant Vice President, Regional Head of the Module Business Unit (MBU) of Europe and Africa at Trina Solar, added: "Tegnatia is a major player in the Turkish solar PV market, so we are very pleased to enter this partnership. It represents an important milestone in the promising Turkish market and we are looking forward to supporting and accelerating the much-needed deployment of solar PV in Turkey, through the provision of our industry-leading modules which Trina Solar will also showcase at the forthcoming SOLAREX exhibition in Istanbul. Our focus at Trina Solar is on providing high-quality PV technologies that our partners can rely on, and we anticipate great success for our latest venture into the Turkish market."
