Inosolar and SolarWorld start exclusive partnership

15.01.2018

SolarWorld Industries and Turkish solar EPC and distributing company Inosolar  announced to cooperate as exclusive partners for the growing Turkish market. Both companies further agreed on shipments of about more than 60 MW of solar modules to Turkey during first half of 2018. The companies signed respective contracts during a visit of Inosolar’s management to SolarWorld’s module manufactory in Freiberg, Germany.

Basis for Inosolar picking SolarWorld as supplier for the Turkish market is the manufacturer’s decades long experience in producing solar cells and modules of extraordinary longevity, reliability and high power. Ismet Ersoy, managing director of Inosolar: „We’re delighted to cooperate with a manufacturing partner committed more than anybody else to quality and sustainability. This focus on quality is a key factor for our business in Turkey and above.“

Inosolar already accomplished several solar projects using SolarWorld products. SolarWorld Industries is the leading European manufacturer of so-called PERC high efficiency solar cells and modules. During 2017 it has converted its production facilities entirely to this technology.

Dr.-Ing. E.h. Frank Asbeck, managing director of SolarWorld Industries GmbH: „Inosolar is a loyal and extraordinarily capable partner. We’re looking forward to cooperate exclusively with Inosolar to supply the growing Turkish market. Jointly our two companies will contribute to making energy supply in Turkey more sustainable.“
