Enerparc A.G. and OzEnergy A.Ş. announce the completion of an 1173 kWp rooftop solar power plant for Gamateks, the leading local textile manufacturer in Turkey.
The solar PV plant was installed on the rooftop of the Gamateks facility, as a part of a 10 MWp portfolio, which is located in the district of Honaz in the province of Denizli, Turkey.
OzEnergy completed the project as the main contractor of German solar energy giant Enerparc, who acted as the EPCM contractor of the project.
The rooftop PV project atop the facility of Gamateks in Honaz is estimated to offset CO2 emissions by approximately 1.008 metric tons annually, the equivalent of 420 homes’ energy use for one year.
Ozgur Aydinli who is Board Member of Gamateks stated:
“We considered to work with Enerparc and OzEnergy for our first solar project, as they are the leading solar companies since the first solar PV project realized in Turkey. However, we believe that we have made the right decision by entrusting our roof to Europe’s largest solar player.”
Ertuğ Babataş, International Sales Manager of Enerparc AG said:
“First project of Enerparc was a rooftop project in Turkey. It’s our pleasure to continue rooftop PV projects together with our valuable Turkish partner. We have carried out many successful projects with OzEnergy both in Turkey and in neighbouring countries. We are sure that we will undertake many successful projects with our experience and expertise in rooftop projects. We’d like to thank Gamateks for choosing us and paying attention to quality and experience.
The entrepreneurial potential, especially in the SME sector, is very high in Turkey. We see great potential in the development of commercial rooftop systems for self-consumption, financed by Turkish companies themselves. Moreover, the diverse economic and cultural relations between Germany and Turkey are seen as very conducive to the involvement of German companies in the country.”
Özgür Sarpdag, Board Member of OzEnergy said:
“We’re proud to be the sole registered partner of Enerparc who is the developer of special projects and also the largest solar energy player in Europe. We’re sure that we will accomplish very successful works together for the upcoming years. We would like to thank Gamateks who is the leading local producer & exporter of Turkish textile products, for choosing us.”
