Focusing on climate change and environmental studies while carrying out all its activities, ASELSAN analyzes the emissions arising from its activities and implements improvement practices.
In this context, the company decided to establish a solar power plant that could generate its own electricity from renewable sources.
The power plant, which is planned to have a total capacity of 75 megawatts, will use the 250 kilowatt ASELSAN PULSAR series inverters produced by ASELSAN with national resources and put on the market this year, and the operation of the power plant will be provided by ASELSAN. When the power plant is completed, the annual total electrical energy needs of the company’s Ankara campuses will not only be met, but it will also be possible to sell the excess electricity produced to the grid.
While studies are being initiated for the ASELSAN Self Consumption Solar Power Plant, which will contribute greatly to the “2050 net zero emissions” target that it has determined as part of its sustainable energy policy for future generations, the plant is planned to be operational in 2024.
Targeting share in foreign markets
Considering the recently increasing renewable energy investments, ASELSAN has put the photovoltaic inverter, one of the most critical components in solar power plants, on its agenda.
Photovoltaic inverters, which are used as power converters in many areas from land and roof type solar energy systems to large solar power plants, convert the direct current type power produced through solar panels into alternating current type to be used in network infrastructures.
The designed photovoltaic inverter, with its 250 kilowatt output power, has the distinction of being the photovoltaic inverter with the highest output power that has been designed with national resources and produced with domestic facilities so far in Turkey.
With the solutions to be put forward in this field, it is aimed to be a solution partner for domestic and foreign investors. Gaining a share in foreign markets with devices that will gain a place in the domestic market and gain history is among the objectives.
Thanks to the infrastructure it has, the products, which can be connected in a modular central way, will be able to take part in central inverter structures with the in-cabin application in line with the preferences of the investors.
In addition, by using RS485 and PLC (optional) communication infrastructures, investors and engineering, supply and installation companies will be able to use remote monitoring and tracking systems both on the basis of inverter device and switchboard.
