Paris, France - 28 March 2023 – GE announces today that it has been selected by Ecogreen Energy to deliver its FLEXINVERTER Solar Power Station technology for the 130 MWp, 100 MWac Nigde Bor Solar power plant to be built in Nigde, Turkey. The scope of work includes design, engineering, procurement, and commissioning of the Solar Power Station.
The Nigde Bor solar power plant is part of YEKA- GES4 launched in 2022 by the Ministry of Energy. It will enable the energy transition in the country and beyond, by helping Turkey continue the expansion of renewable energy resources and commission 10 GW of solar capacity between 2017-27, according to IEA, Turkey's solar energy capacity is projected to reach 52.9 gigawatts with an increase of approximately 500% by 2035.
This project adds up to the 1.3 GW of solar projects GE is delivering in Turkey.
Prakash Chandra, Renewable Hybrids CEO, GE, said: “The potential for solar energy in Turkey is a reality. We are thrilled to be partnering with Ecogreen Energy on the projects and look forward to more opportunities to increase the penetration of renewable energy in Turkey and beyond.”
GE will partner with Ecogreen in the supply and services contract of an extended scope of equipment beyond inverter stations and commissioning services. Inogen will execute the local works to fulfill the EPC scope. GE and Inogen will work together again after having completed 1.3 GW of YEKA and Hybrids projects in Turkey.
