GE Vernova Signs Contract for Kalyon PV’s 157 MW Solar Project

by Madaline Dunn

GE Vernova has signed a contract with Kalyon PV to supply its FLEXINVERTERTM solar power station and design and engineering services to Kalyon PV’s solar project in Viranşehir, Turkey.

GE Vernova’s regional solutions provider, Inogen, will be responsible for the construction and installation of the solar power station, which is expected to power Kalyon Enerji’s 157 MW solar photovoltaics (PV) factory.

According to the company, this makes Kalyon Enerji one of the first companies in Turkey to produce solar panels using 100 per cent renewable electricity when commissioned.

It was noted that Kalyon Enerji’s 1,347 MWp/1,000 MWe Karapinar solar power plant in the Konya Karapinar province has already deployed GE Vernova’s FLEXINVERTERTM solar technology.

The Karapinar facility, which was commissioned in 2023 and part of the first Turkish solar YEKA GES tender under the YEKA program, is Turkey’s largest single source of solar power to date.

Megi Gabriyel, Region Leader Solar & Storage Solutions, Middle East, Africa & Turkey at GE Vernova, explained that the company is now focusing on industries that want to produce captive power at a utility scale for their self-consumption through PV projects, such as Kalyon PV’s solar power plant in Viranşehir, and renewable hybrid projects, including large scale storage.

“We offer a comprehensive financing to support our customers, which includes support from export credit agencies. This financing package enables us to provide competitive financing options to facilitate and scale up the adoption of renewable energy technologies in the energy sector,” added Gabriyel.

Looking ahead, Turkey aims to commission 10 GW of solar capacity between 2017 and 2027, with projections indicating a surge of approximately 500% to 52.9 GW by 2035, according to the IEA.
