The Scandinavian-German manufacturer Innotech Solar (ITS) has supplied more than 400 PV modules to Urla Winery located on the Turkish Riviera. ITS stood out among well-known competitors thanks to its special business model and the efficiency of its solar modules, which retain their excellent level of performance even in high ambient temperatures.

“Even on hot days, Innotech Solar modules produce significantly more power than other modules on the market. This was very important for us when making our decision, as we often see temperatures of up to 45 °C,” states Can Ortabaş, the owner and managing director of Urla Winery. ITS modules have demonstrated an outstanding temperature coefficient of minus 0.39 percent per Kelvin in a photon test laboratory. The winery’s solar system produces around 7.8 MWh more power a year than systems with modules that only have an average temperature coefficient. “I was also convinced by ITS modules’ green production process, as this matches our vineyard’s philosophy of producing wine in an environmentally friendly manner.”

The 100 kWp system, which was connected to the grid last month, was installed on open land belonging to the winery by the Turkish EPC contractor Laterna from Istanbul. Urla Winery has purposefully chosen not to use any pumps when producing its wine and instead employs the natural gravity flow technique, which improves the wine’s flavor and saves energy. The premises also serve as a boutique hotel and the winery ranks among one of the best in Turkey.

In the spirit of the Christmas season Innotech Solar is making a donation in the name of our customers and suppliers to PV for AFRICA.

PV for Africa is a charitable organization for establishment of PV systems and solar home systems in Tanzania. Through our donation we hope to bring a little bit of the security that we enjoy every day to the people of Tanzania.

With the project “Electricity is Life” the organization delivers hospitals with the necessary electricity to be able to cool their medications.

Most hospitals in rural Tanzania have no access to the electrical grid. The result is a reliance on diesel generators to provide the electricity necessary for the refrigeration of sensitive medications. However diesel is expensive and a constant supply cannot be guaranteed. If a diesel generator fails or cannot be fueled, lifesaving medication spoils.

To address this issue PV for AFRICA has developed a complete PV-powered refrigeration system. The standalone system consists of a solar module, a charge controller, a battery and a high efficiency refrigerator.  To date 5 systems have been installed by qualified Tanzanian installers providing reliable cooling as well as emergency lighting.

The Innotech Solar team wishes you and yours happy holidays and a season full of joy.
