Turkey’s 1 GW PV tender attracted, so far, a lowest bid of $0.0248/kWh

The Turkish Ministry of Energy has completed, thus far, only the tender’s first 60 MW tranche, and the four winning bids ranged from $0.0248/kWh to $0.0335/kWh. The other tranches of the procurement exercise will be finalized over the next few days.

Turkey’s Ministry of Energy has allocated 60 MW of installed PV power in the first tranche of the 1 GW PV tender it launched on March 8, and for which the shortlisted bidders were announced a week later.

The ministry selected four projects with, each, a capacity of 15 MW. Two projects are planned to be located in the Adıyaman province of southeastern Turkey, and their developers offered prices of TRY0.209/kWh ($0.0248) and TRY0.22/kWh ($0.0260).

For the other two projects, which are both expected to be built in the Ağrı province, in the eastern part of the country, final bids were TRY0.282/kWh ($0.0335) and TRY0.289/kWh ($0.0344).

“Adıyaman and Ağrı are located [in] eastern Turkey and we expect to witness lower prices [in] the coming days for other regions,” Eren Engur, a board member of the energy storage committee at the Turkish PV association, Günder, told pv magazine.

The tender was more than eight times oversubscribed, as 131 project proposals, with a combined capacity of 9.4 GW, were submitted for review. The projects selected will receive a 15-year power purchase guarantee.

Domestic content requirements for equipment selection are playing an important role in the tender.
