The solar carport will be used in the visitor car parking area and was constructed by Agon Enerji, which used 196 blueplanet 50.0 TL3 inverters and ten Powador 60.0 TL3 inverters from KACO and CdTe thin-film Series 4 modules (120Wp) from First Solar. Image: KACO
PV inverter manufacturer KACO new energy said it has supplied its string inverters to a 10.2MW solar carport in Turkey as part of a new amusement park near completion in Ankara, Turkey.
The Ankapark amusement park is said to be one of the largest in the world and has been under construction for six years over a total area of 120 hectares.
The solar carport will be used in the visitor car parking area and was constructed by Agon Enerji, which used 196 blueplanet 50.0 TL3 inverters and ten Powador 60.0 TL3 inverters from KACO and CdTe thin-film Series 4 modules (120Wp) from First Solar.
Nedret Ünlü, Country Manager of the Turkish branch office of KACO new energy said, "The Ankapark project is a great opportunity for us to consolidate our position and raise our profile in the Turkish marketplace. Agon Enerji chose KACO new energy inverters for their reliability and high efficiency levels."
Chin-based PV Module manufacturer Risen Energy built a 55MW carport system in 2015 at the manufacturing operations of Volkswagen in Hangzhou Bay, Shanghai for manufacturing workers.
The first phase capacity was 20MW using 255W PV modules from Risen Energy. The project total capacity was expected to be 55MW, covering an area of about 20 football fields, which can house more than 20,000 vehicles. Image: Risen Energy
Going into its fifth year over 200 delegates from 150 companies and 20 countries representing the PV supply chain will gather in Malaysia to discuss the technology roadmaps for PV cell advancement in GW markets. The scope of the event has been expanded this year, to cover developments in wafer supply and thin-film investments and technologies alongside all the regular benefits to all stakeholders tracking PV technology and investment trends for the next 5 years.
Understand fully the technical and logistical supply chains that determine the production and performance of solar modules, including all related factors impacting quality, reliability & bankability.
