Chinese manufacturer CSUN has signed a 15MW deal to supply solar modules for a series of ground-mounted PV projects in Turkey. CSUN, which is a PV manufacturer with headquarters in China, has signed the agreement to supply the solar modules with Turkish engineering procurement and construction firm EPC PV-Systems. The Chinese company claims the agreement is the largest single contract for product supply to PV projects in Turkey.

The framework agreement, which was signed at the Solarex exhibition in Istanbul today, covers CSUN’s 250-60P solar module series. The modules will be used in several unlicensed ground-mounted PV projects across Turkey. The first projects will be constructed in the Antalya region in the south-west of the country. 

CSUN CEO Stephen Cai, said: “This is the largest single contract for product supply to Turkish projects. We are very proud that our modules have been chosen by PV-Systems. The framework contract signed today is a major milestone for CSUN and confirms our strategy to invest into production facilities in Turkey, which we consider a major hub for the booming Turkish, developing Middle East and established European markets.”

The PV modules for the projects will be produced at CSUN Eurasia’s factory in Istanbul, as well as deliveries from its base in China. The CSUN Eurasia PV facility, which opened in May last year, produces polycrystalline cells and modules based on the company's developed technology and equipment.

Hüseyin Köse, an owner of PV-Systems and a long-term partner of CSUN, said the company chose to cooperate with CSUN, based on his experience with their products and services in Greece and Bulgaria.

“The quality of the products provided by CSUN has proven to be outstanding and we are very satisfied with their services,” Köse said. “The framework agreement will ensure module availability for our expansion plans in Turkey.”
