MECASOLAR supplies 4.5MW in horizontal trackers to solar PV plant in Turkey

Mecasolar is supplying solar materials to a 4.5MW solar plant in Antalya, Turkey. The project strengthens Mecasolar's position in the Balkans, where the company plans to develop 30MW by 2017.

MECASOLAR will supply 4.5MW in solar trackers to a new project in Korkuteli, in Antalya Province, Turkey


A total of 47 trackers, using 420 axes of up to 10.8kWp per axis, and 18,960 modules of 240Wp nominal power each, will be installed in this solar power plant located 390km south-west of the capital of Turkey. Delivery will go on through July.

According to MECASOLAR sources, the 140kWp horizontal single-axis tracker is a modular, low-height structure characterised by simple assembly, no welding on location and higher output, which means higher return on investment for solar PV projects.

The pioneering Turkish project strengthens MECASOLAR's presence in the Balkans, where the company plans to develop 30MW by 2017.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
