GE Vernova wins contract from Kalyon PV to supply FLEXINVERTER solar power station

By Editor


GE Vernova has signed a contract with Kalyon PV to supply its FLEXINVERTER solar power station, as well as design and engineering services, for the 157 MW solar PV factory in Viransehir, Turkey. Financial details were not disclosed.

Inogen, the solutions provider of GE Vernova, will be in charge of the construction and installation of the solar power station.

Kalyon Enerji will be one of the first companies in Turkey to produce solar panels using 100 percent renewable electricity.

“By investing in solar panel manufacturing and providing these solar panels to large-scale solar power plants, we’re not only providing sustainable energy solutions, but also creating jobs and contributing to Turkey’s energy independence,” said Dr. Murtaza Ata, Board Member of Kalyon PV.

GE Vernova also offers financing to support its customers, which includes support from export credit agencies. This financing package enables GE Vernova to provide competitive financing options to facilitate and scale up the adoption of renewable energy technologies in the energy sector.

“After executing several Renewable Energy Resources Zones (YEKA) projects in Turkey, we are now focusing on industries that want to produce captive power at a utility scale for their self-consumption through PV projects, such as Kalyon PV’s solar power plant in Viranşehir, and renewable hybrid projects, including large scale storage,” said Megi Gabriyel, Region Leader Solar & Storage Solutions, Middle East, Africa & Turkey at GE Vernova.

GE Vernova’s FLEXINVERTERTM technology is powering 2.5 GWp/1.9 GWe of combined solar power capacity in Turkey.

Kalyon Enerji’s 1,347 MWp/1,000 MWe Karapinar solar power plant in the Konya Karapinar province has already deployed GE Vernova’s FLEXINVERTER solar technology.

Kalyon’s Karapinar project, commissioned in 2023, was part of the first Turkish solar YEKA GES tender launched in 2017 by the Turkish Ministry of Energy under the Renewable Energy Resources Zones (YEKA) program.

Turkey aims to commission 10 GW of solar capacity between 2017 and 2027, with projections indicating a surge of approximately 500 percent to 52.9 GW by 2035, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA).
