August 6, 2014 - Hanwha SolarOne Co., Ltd. has announced the completion of its 2MW delivery to the Ozkoyuncu Solar Enerji power plant in the Turkish province of Kayseri, Cappadocia. Else Enerji has been responsible for the turnkey completion. The solar park was connected to the grid in July.
"The PV modules from Hanwha Solar have already demonstrated their high performance and reliable output in existing solar parks realised by Else Enerji in Turkey," says Mustafa Herdem, General Manager of Else Enerji. "As expected, our positive experience in the field was confirmed by the stringent third-party quality assessment performed in Germany by TÜV Rheinland. The combination of high-quality products and a financially strong parent company represent an attractive package for our investors. We are currently investigating the prospects of further solar projects in Turkey. Our aim would be to engage in a long-term partnership with Hanwha Solar."
Construction started on 1 May and the park was completed on 4 July. The solar power system is located on a 38-acre brownfield site close to the Kayseri-Nigde highway in the Turkish province of Kayseri, Cappadocia. It is estimated that it will generate around 3.4 million kWh of electricity annually.
"The approach taken by Else Enerji and Ozkoyuncu Mining confirms a very positive market trend – namely an increasing sensibility regarding the quality of solar products," says Winfried Wahl, Senior Director Products and Marketing at Hanwha SolarOne GmbH. "Our company is continuously expanding its cooperation with renowned testing institutes in order to verify our processes and products to the benefit of our customers."
