Turkish solar plant Gaziantep the largest operational PV park in the country

Turkish solar plant Gaziantep the largest operational PV park in the country
The largest operational solar plant in Turkey is situated in the Southeastern Anatolia Region, it consists of 25 photovoltaic sub-units, each 1 MW-which means that it did not need a government license, thanks to its 1MW size- and it has been connected to the grid in Islahiye in the province of Gaziantep, reports the Balkan Green Energy News site.

The park, the largest such operational photovoltaic one in Turkey is the result of a co-peartive project by Turkish INO SOLAR and the German Wagner Solar GmbH.

"INO SOLAR developed this project for a group of land owners near Islahiye in the Gaziantep province. The solar plant was envisioned to consist of 25 unlicensed sub-units. The project was realised in two steps. The first 5 MW block was commissioned last year. Next 20 MW units were accepted by local grid operator TEDAŞ over a month ago and are now connected to the grid.".../IBNA
