Hopewind, a global leader in green energy solutions, has entered into a significant distribution agreement to supply its cutting-edge 385kW utility-scale PV solution to its partner, KVK Elektrik Enerji A.Ş. This agreement was signed during the 16th EIF International Energy Congress and Energy Expo held in Turkey.
Turkey, known for its abundant sunlight resources and desert terrain, is primed for utility-scale PV projects. In 2023, the country is set to see an overall 2.2GW of new installations, with utility-scale solar accounting for nearly half of that capacity. This underscores the growing momentum in developing utility-scale solar in Turkey. Hopewind’s 120MW deal with KVK Elektrik Enerji A.Ş. aligns with this trend, aiming to meet the rising market demand.
Hopewind’s groundbreaking 385kW string inverter, launched earlier this year, stands out as a game-changer in the utility PV industry. It boasts the highest nominal power output in the sector and is well-suited to revolutionize energy generation. Equipped with advanced cooling and 8 MPP trackers, this inverter can operate at full power even in ambient temperatures of up to 40 degrees Celsius. It achieves an impressive maximum efficiency rating of 99.01%, making it ideal for Turkey’s hot desert terrain.
The inverter features PLC communication, ensuring seamless integration with control systems, which simplifies installation and reduces project owners’ costs. Notably, it includes a vital PID recovery function that addresses concerns about PV string degradation, extending the life of PV modules. Moreover, safety and reliability are prioritized, with built-in SPD modules providing protection against induced and direct lightning strikes, enhancing the system’s overall safety and dependability, even in challenging conditions.
Sara Wang, Vice President at Hopewind, expressed her excitement about the agreement, saying, “We are truly thrilled to sign the very first contract of supplying our 385kW PV solution to our Turkish partner. This achievement not only marks a milestone of our long-term dedication to innovation but also serves as a testimony to our long-standing trust by the customers.”
This agreement is poised to contribute to Turkey’s growing renewable energy landscape and reflects Hopewind’s commitment to pioneering green energy solutions.
