Solar Frontier Europe has signed a 23MW module supply agreement with Konar Energy. The agreement was signed at Solarex 2015 in Istanbul. Solar Frontier will be supplying its proprietary CIS thin-film modules to Konar Energy for five upcoming solar power plants in Turkey.
Module shipments for two projects, a 5.9MW installation in Konya and a 4.7MW installation in Burdur, will commence shortly. The three remaining projects are set to follow by late 2016.
"Konar Energy is committed to bring high-quality, high-performance solar power plants on stream in Turkey. We are confident that we will be able to do so with Solar Frontier by our side," said Tolga Özdemir, CEO of Konar Energy. "The ability of Solar Frontier's CIS modules to yield more electricity than crystalline silicon modules, especially in challenging conditions such as the high temperatures of Turkey, combined with the company's high-quality manufacturing process and its reputation for continuous support, were all deciding factors for us."
"Solar energy is naturally suited to Turkey. It is one of the countries that receive the most hours of sunlight and is backed by a growing economy. Solar Frontier looks forward to closely supporting Konar Energy's experienced team of project developers as it meets Turkey's demand for clean and renewable energy," said Wolfgang Lange, Managing Director of Solar Frontier Europe.
