•    9.1 MWp Solentegre plant obtains full government approval
•    Largest photovoltaic power plant in Turkey
Ankara, November 8th, 2016 /, Asunim Yenilenebilir Enerji Teknolojileri İnş. Müh. San. Tic. Ltd. Şti., a member of the Asunim group ("Asunim Turkey") and Phoenix Solar AG (ISIN DE000A0BVU93), a leading international photovoltaic system integrator listed in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange have now connected to the grid the 9.1 MWp "Solentegre" photovoltaic power plant on behalf of their customer, Akfen Renewable Energies. The system located in Elazığ in Eastern Turkey received full ministry acceptance. Despite the difficult terrain conditions the project was executed after a construction time of only four months. The project was implemented in partnership with the European Development Bank (EBRD). Solentegre also is the first governmentally licensed project to be built in Turkey which included the permission to build it as one large complex instead of as an array of single 1-MW-systems. Accordingly, the system is now the largest solar photovoltaic power plant in Turkey.

Umut Gürbüz, managing partner for Asunim Turkey, underlined: "We are proud to having delivered this second large project on behalf of Akfen Renewable Energies in accordance with Turkish law and after a challenging but eventually successful planning and construction phase. It will contribute to consolidate and increase our already high market share in Turkey."

"This renewed successful cooperation with our strategic partners at Asunim will strengthen our joint access to the Turkish market. The experience in planning and building licensed photovoltaic systems in accordance with Turkish law adds to our reputation to design and deliver high quality photovoltaic power plants on time and on budget and is generating additional business opportunities", added Klaus Friedl, Head Middle East at Phoenix Solar AG.
