GE Renewable Energy has been selected by Kaylon to deliver solar power stations for 1.3 GW of projects in Turkey, the company announced Thursday.

GE will supply its FLEXINVERTER* solar power stations to the 270 MW Karapinar phase II-A and 810 MW Karapinar phase II-B solar plants, in addition to the power stations already commissioned at the 267 MW Karapinar phase I solar plant.

The agreement represents the first time GE has supplied its FLEXINVERTER* technology outside the US.

“There is tremendous potential for solar energy in Turkey which can be addressed through smart solutions that will help integrate this natural energy source into the grid in a reliable way and at utility scale," said Prakash Chandra, CEO Renewable Hybrids at GE Renewable Energy. "We are thrilled to be partnering with Kalyon on these projects and look forward to more opportunities to increase the penetration of renewable energy in Turkey.”

GE's FLEXINVERTER* solar power station combines a solar inverter, medium voltage power transformer, and an optional MV Ring Main Unit, integrated in a 20-feet ISO high cube container.

The project in Turkey's Konya Karapinar province is expected to reach commercial operations by December 2022.
