    The consortium of Kalyon Enerji and Hanwha Q Cells has won Turkey’s 1 GW solar PV tender, which was held today.

    South Korea’s Hanwha Q Cells and local Turkish firm Kalyon Enerji have won the Konya tender, offering to sell the generated electricity at a feed-in tariff of $0.0699 per kWh.

    Turkey’s energy minister Berat Albayrak said recently that the plant “will have a 15-year purchase guarantee without any currency risk.”

    Ates Ugurel, founder of Turkey’s Solar Energy Society Solarbaba, told pv magazine that the $0.0699 per kWh tariff is “not a bad figure, considering that Hanwha Q Cells will make a quite big investment in Turkey.” However, he added, it was not the price that was important to me but the name of the international investor. Hanwha Q Cells was a good candidate!”

    On Friday, pv magazine reported that Turkey will launch a new tender for 1 GW of solar PV capacity in mid-summer.

    This news was confirmed by the Turkish energy minister in a recent presentation at a U.S. conference. The minister did not say whether the new tender will also be accompanied by rules for local manufacturing.
