juwi Group to develop its first PV solar project in Turkey

The German juwi Group is currently constructing seven PV solar plants with a combined capacity of 7.4 MW in the Turkish municipality of Denizli.

The seven individual PV solar power plants will produce 12 million kWh of clean electricity per year and are scheduled to be connected to the grid early this summer.

The firm was awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract from the Turkish company Karine Enerji.

juwi-COO Stephan Hansen has stated:

"The Turkish energy market offers great potential for renewables. [...] We follow a large pipeline of potential projects and will successfully realize more projects in the future. Wind- and solar energy will be the backbone of this country's future energy supply."

juwi has been active in Turkey since 2013 and is already considered as one of the top foreign EPC contractors in the country.

Turkey is committed to renewable energies. In the past ten years the country's installed renewable energy capacity has more than doubled to 25 GW. An estimated 40 GW of renewable energy capacity will be installed in the next ten years.

The country's target is to achieve one-third of its power needs from renewable energy by 2023.
