The systems will generate approximately 20300 MWh per year and are another two of the few licensed systems that will be grid connected in 2018.
After a successful implementation of Akfen’s first 8MWn licensed system in Elazığ in 2016 and after recently signing another 9MWn license with YBT Enerji, Asunim is very proud to add these new references to its EPC and Operation and Maintenance portfolio.
Asunim is a highly active and consistent EPC company in the Turkish solar market that just signed another 9MW license with YBT Enerji. The dedicated international engineering team of Asunim has a long track record of successful systems design and implementation, using cutting-edge 3D modelling and simulation software to correctly elaborate extremely important shading and counter slope calculations.
Managing partner of Asunim Turkey, Mr. Umut Gürbüz stated: “We are delighted that Akfen have chosen to continue to work with us, it is an extremely important reference that our approach to EPC in Turkey is well established. Like all our other projects, these systems feature the best industrial equipment and we employ installation, operation, maintenance and monitoring according to highest standard of European norms and many years of experience. Each 10MWn site of Akfen is estimated to generate up to 20.3 million kWh electricity per year. Operation and Maintenance activities will be covered by Maxima Enerji, affiliate O&M Company of Asunim, managing our whole portfolio and systems built by third parties that, due to the current consolidation in the Turkish market, are no longer active market participants”.
The licensed systems, with a capacity of 12 MWp each, will be installed in Konya Province, Turkey. Project planning, engineering steps and system installation are scheduled to be concluded within the next 5 months.
Asunim is currently one of the leading EPC companies in Turkey and has so far concluded projects of 140MW with a separate and clear structure committed for long-term O&M commitments.
