Istanbul – Upsolar, a provider of solar PV modules, today announced a new milestone after being awarded a contract by Hilvan Enerji to supply solar panels for a 23.6&nbs;MW solar farm in Hilvan, Sanliurfa, Turkey. When operational, the power generated by the facility will be able to provide enough electricity to power approximately 17,500 households to the region.

Construction on the Hilvan Enerji plant will begin within the next few months and will be equipped with 87,630 Upsolar UP-M270P modules. The system is expected to generate approximately 40 GWh and save up to 20,000 tons of CO2 annually.

"This project not only paints a bright future for Upsolar but also for Turkey and the Middle East as both regions continue to ramp-up theirsolar energy capacity," said Ioannis Markatatos, Turkey and Middle East Director of Upsolar Group. "With our huge success in Turkey, we are confident and optimistic about our outlook in the region as we continue our expansion into the Middle East and we see this as a sign of more things to come."

Upsolar had already set a record at the beginning of last year after supplying solar panels for an 18.7MW project as part of a 40MW solar module sales agreement.
