OC3 adding module capacity in Germany to meet Turkish market drive

OC3 said that it had concluded around 20MW of planned industrial rooftop projects in Turkey through its parent company NGIM Holding.

Specialist German-based PV module manufacturer Solarion is expanding its c-Si-glass-foil module production to meet parent company's – OC3 AG – pipeline of commercial and industrial rooftop projects in Turkey. 

OC3 said that it had concluded around 20MW of planned industrial rooftop projects in Turkey through its parent company NGIM Holding, a leading in roofing materials firm based in Istanbul, Turkey. The company noted that it had recently received market entrance permission from the Turkish Ministry of Economics, after a lengthy period of government inspections.

Solarion’s BAPV solar module is a c-Si-glass-foil module with a front side mounted junction box and is bonded by hot air welding onto PVC, EVA and TPO roofing membranes.

Module production at Solarion’s Leipzig, Germany plant, which houses a 60MW fully-automated assembly line, is to expand capacity to 100MW per annum on the back of demand for commercial and industrial PV applications in Turkey.
