Trina Solar Limited has supplied 8.8 MW of PV modules to Citus Power as part of one of the largest solar projects in Turkey. The Yahyali Solar Power Plant was connected to the grid in August 2016 and will generate 12,500 MWh of electricity per year - enough to power 2,000 homes.

33,800 Trina Solar multicrystalline 260 W 60-cell Honey modules (TSM-PC05A) have been installed to power the solar PV plant, which is one of the 10 largest solar projects in Turkey. The plant is situated in Yahyali, in Kayseri province in Central Anatolia on a 160,000 m2 (40 acres) site and was developed by renewable energy specialist Citus Power, which also assumes the EPC role for the project.

Financed by the Turkiye Finans Participation Bank, the project's planning phase started in late 2014, and Citus obtained the approval from TEDAS (Turkey Electricity Distribution Company) in 2015. Trina Solar provided the solar modules for the various installation phases from Q4 2015 until Q2 2016.The installation of the project was completed in summer 2016 and connected to the grid in August. The generated power will be sold to the Turkish state for the first 10 years under the applicable FIT mechanism.

"At Citus Power, we are investors in our own projects. We develop, design, construct and operate wind and solar power projects. In every step of these initiatives, our vision and aim is to work with partners who have a proven track record as being amongst the best in their profession. In line with this philosophy, we decided to work with Trina Solar on this significant solar project," said Cihan Kiykac, Business Development Director at Citus Power.

"Trina Solar's renowned quality and module performance, as well as their leading position amongst the Tier 1 manufacturers, were key factors in our decision. Their financial strength also makes them a reliable partner for a long-term investment from a warranty point of view."

"We are very happy to cooperate with the highly professional team of Citus Power for such a large-scale, groundbreaking project in Turkey's developing solar market", said Doruk Ozulu, Country Manager Turkey at Trina Solar.

"We are grateful to Citus Power not only for selecting our modules, but also for a great team effort in bringing the project to fruition. Their local experience in commercial, technical and legal matters has been instrumental in helping us to supply our solar modules to the Turkish market more effectively."
