JinkoSolar completes giant Turkish solar farm with Asunim

JinkoSolar, a global leader in the solar PV industry, has completed its development of a solar power plant in Manisa, west Turkey, the largest such facility in the wider region, in cooperation with Asunim Turkey, a leading PV project developer and EPC company, JinkoSolar has just announced in a statement.

Asunim is currently one of the leading EPC companies in Turkey and has so far completed projects of 140MW.

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 detail extremely important shading and counter slope calculations, JinkoSolar noted in its company statement.

The Manisa solar power plant consists of two separate sites with a total production capacity of 40.3 MW. One unit offers 19.7MW and the other 20.6 MW. The systems feature JinkoSolar high-efficiency (PID free) solar modules and REFUsol 40K string inverters operating without the need for fan cooling and with full IP65 protection against humidity and dust.

The German company Solar-Log was chosen for the project’s SCADA system. Operation and maintenance activities will be covered by Maxima Energy, an affiliated but independent O&M Company of Asunim.

“Installing a project on a flat terrain is easier when compared to sites with different slopes. In order to get the highest yield several different studies and calculations were made for this challenging project,” noted Umut Gürbüz, managing partner of Asunim Turkey.

“We are extremely pleased to see this contract as an outcome of our steadily growing successful partnership with Asunim Turkey over the last years. Asunim Turkey, as a trusted local partner, shares and follows the same highest product and service quality levels that we also apply at JinkoSolar, globally, which makes us stronger and helps us maintain our leadership position in the market,” remarked  Gener Miao, Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing of JinkoSolar.
