With a total investment of 71 million U.S. dollars, the two companies will build a “solar photovoltaic system” at Tosyali’s plant in Osmaniye, combing Huawei’s smart solar inverters with the tech expertise of SolarAPEX, Turkish leading solar power installer.
The project is planned to complete by 2023 with a total installed power of 140 MW, which would help cut carbon emissions from steel production in Turkey by 116,525 metric tonnes per year, Tosyali chair of the board Fuat Tosyali said in a press release.
Huawei launched its operations in Turkey in 2002 and established an R&D department in 2009 in Istanbul, the second-largest center outside China.
Fatih Dogan, general manager of SolarAPEX and the executive director of the project, said “at a time when the effects of climate change are felt intensely, Tosyali Holding will produce the greenest steel in the world with this project.”
