TRITEC realizes first PV systems in Turkey

(PresseBox) (Allschwil / Basel, ) The leading Swiss solar company TRITEC successfully continues to expand its international project business. In the south of Turkey, a 200 kWp system was realized end of August on the roofs of a carpet factory and a 10 kWp system on a water reservoir in a recreational park.

The weaving machines of the carpet factory Sirma in southern Gaziantep are running around the clock every day. When one takes into account the high irradiation rates of 1,800 kWh/m² and about 300 sunny days per year, it's rather close at hand that the company produces at least part of its required energy with an own solar system.

With the 200 kWp system installed by TRITEC, the company can now produce 360,000 kWh of clean solar energy. Feed-in into the public grid was waived – and with it the state compensation for feeding electricity into the grid. The energy can be used 100% by the company itself. At the current electricity prices on location, ROI (return on investment) will anyway be realized after seven years.

The system is distributed over four trapezoidal sheet metal roofs, and it was possible to complete it in record time – in only four days – using the tried and tested TRI-VENT mounting system by TRITEC. All that at daytime temperatures of over 40 degrees. The special installation partner United Solar from Gaziantep here profited from the know-how transfer by TRITEC. Further joint projects are already being planned.

The second PV system had been ordered by the city administration of Gaziantep. On the flat roof of the water reservoir in a municipal recreational park, the 10 kWp plant annually produces 18,000 kWh clean solar power. The solar modules have been fixed with TRI-STAND Aero, the mounting system which had been specifically and aerodynamically developed by TRITEC for low-ballast flat roofs.

For more than 25 years, TRITEC has been specialized in the generation of renewable energy by means of photovoltaic systems. The Swiss company operates worldwide and annually realizes over 5,000 solar projects with about 1,500 qualified installation partners. Such projects include the world's largest stadium-integrated photovoltaic system on the football stadium Stade de Suisse in Berne; also, systems integrated in a building's exterior, as on the Gehry Building at the Novartis Campus in Basel; or Switzerland's largest solar power plant on the distribution centre of Migros-Verteilbetrieb Neuendorf AG in Neuendorf. TRITEC attaches great importance to the high quality of products. Its portfolio exclusively provides brand products of established manufacturers which guarantee top quality. Supplementarily, TRITEC offers clever own products for planning, design and performance reviews of solar power systems as well as smart mounting systems. Photovoltaic systems are exposed to the harshest weather conditions for many years and only their prime quality will guarantee long-term investment yields. Finally, clean energy and sustainability belong together for TRITEC - true to their corporate philosophy and mission statement: Energy for a better world.
