Trina Solar has secured a contract to supply 40MW of solar modules to Turkey’s engineering, procurement and construction contractor Tegnatia.

Under the deal, Trina Solar will supply TSM-PD05 (polycrystalline, 60 cells) and TSM-PD14 (polycrystalline, 72 cells) modules by the end of the second quarter of 2016.

Tegnatia intends to use these solar modules in several of its solar projects in the regions of Mersin, Adana, Konya and Erzurum.

Tegnatia is a joint venture between T-Dinamik, a Turkish renewable energy investment company, and Egnatia Group, a Greek construction firm. It intends to build medium and large-scale solar parks in Turkey.

Tegnatia general manager Mustafa Tiris said: "We have ambitious targets to bring the benefits of high-quality solar PV to a wider range of Turkish companies and consumers, which requires a strong and reliable partner that can provide the quality of product and service that these projects demand.

"In addition, we were looking for a partner that can provide support locally, as and when required. Trina Solar represents the ideal fit to help bring these projects to fruition."

Trina Solar assistant vice president and module business unit of Europe and Africa regional head Rongfang Yin said: "Tegnatia is a major player in the Turkish solar PV market, so we are very pleased to enter this partnership.

"Our focus at Trina Solar is on providing high-quality PV technologies that our partners can rely on, and we anticipate great success for our latest venture into the Turkish market."
