Asunim Inks 40mwp Solar Hybrid Project For Wind Farm In Turkey

ASUNIM, a solar EPC company, signed a contract with Akfen Renewable Energy affiliate Derbent Enerji for the 40MWp Hybrid Solar Power Project. ASUNIM will build a solar power plant with a power of 40MWp as an auxiliary source to the Üçpınar Wind Power Plant, which has an installed power of 112.2 MWm/99 MWe, owned by Akfen Renewable Energy.

Üçpınar Wind Power Plant, which was commissioned in 2019 and located within the borders of Lapseki district of Çanakkale province, will be able to meet the annual energy needs of around 127,000 households and prevent the annual carbon dioxide emission of approximately 178,000 tons.

Referring to earlier hybrid solar EPC deals completed by ASUNIM in Turkey, Chairman Umut Gürbüz said, “We are very pleased to be contracted on another project of this scale, belonging ... Akfen Renewable Energy. After the hybrid projects with a total power of 42MWp that we are currently finalizing for another customer in Kayseri and Konya, it is with great pride that we take on our third hybrid project by an energy giant such as Akfen Renewable Energy.

"In addition, we successfully completed Turkey's first licensed solar project, Solentegre 9MWp, for Akfen Renewable Energy in 2016, and two licensed projects with a total installed power of 24MWp in Konya in 2018. We continue to build on our leadership on licensed projects in Turkey with a total of 8 licensed projects finalized.

"In these large-scale hybrid systems, where solar power is retroactively integrated with an existing wind power plant, it is crucial to consider active and reactive power details via a correct software integration. Our experience in this field guarantees a very quick response time during variations of one of these two resources, leading to a higher overall power output.”

The power plant will be installed with a total power of 40MWp for 13 different subareas within the project site. Project planning, engineering and installation are predicted to be completed in a record time of 5 months.

The operation and maintenance activities of the project will afterwards be carried out by Maxima Enerji, the independent O&M company of ASUNIM group.
