German AE Solar to open solar panel factory in Turkey in April


In partnership with Energate Corp., AE Solar has scheduled the start of production at its Kayseri plant in Turkey for April. The German company intends to increase the facility’s annual production of solar modules to 1 GW by the end of the year.

Eighteen years after starting its business, AE Solar has revealed that it will start producing solar panels in the central part of Turkey. The company based in Königsbrunn, Germany, is present in more than 90 countries.

The Kayseri photovoltaic module plant is being developed in a joint venture with Energate Corp. the United States. The company has announced plans to open it in April and increase capacity to 1 GW per year by the end of December.

The company’s strategy is based on high-end products

AE Solar already has factories in China and Georgia. AE stands for alternative energy. The German producer relies on high-end products and design for residential and business equipment, notably its ultra-black Eclipse line.

Turkey has implemented measures to limit imports of energy equipment

According to its website, it has installed and commissioned more than 3,200 solar units. AE Solar said it has sold 511 MW of capacity in Vietnam since September. CEO Alexander Maier founded the company with his brothers.

Future factory enables global expansion

AE Solar has said it will focus its expansion plans on Turkey, the United States, Europe, South America, the Middle East and North Africa. Kayseri’s solar cells will be available with edge lengths of 166, 182 and 210 millimeters and five and 12 bus bars.

Turkey aims to limit imports of energy equipment and support local products and services in the sector. Kalyon and the Chinese CETC opened a manufacturing complex for all components of solar panels in August. The Ankara plant was built to supply the products to the 1 GW photovoltaic project in Karapınar, central Turkey.
