LARGEST ROOFTOP PROJECT, TURKEY
This solar power project located in Kayseri, Turkey, is a cooperation of Canadian Solar and a consortium of companies in the Kayseri Organized Industry Area for the commercial installation of 2.3 MW.
Considering that the cumulative installed PV capacity in Turkey since 1996 is just 6 to 7 MW it is clear that with these two sales contracts, Canadian Solar has reached a milestone in this important emerging market. Combined with our previous success stories, including the first solar PV project to be connected to the grid, we continue to build our momentum in Turkey, Before deciding on the appropriate panel supplier for this project, the consortium visited several panel manufacturers in Europe and Asia, and decided to use Canadian Solar panels because of our track record of quality and reliability as well as superior customer service,” said Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar.
Canadian Solar supplied its high efficiency 60 cell CS6P-P 250 W modules for the 2.3 MW project. The company’s 250 Wp CS6P-P modules outperform competing 60 polycrystalline cell module brands in the market, producing close to 5% more power annually according to PVsyst PV system simulation. In addition, all Canadian Solar modules come with a 10-year material warranty and a 25-year linear power output performance guarantee backed by a third-party insurance policy underwritten by leading insurance companies.
