Turkey: Vacuum Tubes in Residential, Flat Plate in Commercial Segment

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on May 19, 2017
Turkey ApplicationTurkey’s solar thermal market remained strong in 2016. However, sales figures are hardly easy to come by, as there is a formal market, on which businesses offer well-known brands, and an informal one, on which systems are supplied by unregistered small producers. Solar Thermals: Turkey, the latest report on the Turkish market by British consultancy BSRIA has shown that the formal market remained fairly stable last year, with an estimated 1.53 million m² (1.1 GWth) compared to 1.5 million m² in 2015. Owners of residential one- and two-family buildings again accounted for the lion’s share of purchases, as 51 % of all new systems for hot water preparation and a small but growing number of space heating systems were sold to them last year (see the chart above).

Turkey: Market Development 2015 and Forecast 2016

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 26, 2015
Turkey Market DevelopmentWith 1.9 million m² of collector area newly installed in 2014 (1.33 GWth), Turkey was again the second-largest solar thermal market after China last year. The share of vacuum tube collectors had increased significantly over the years, but stagnated in 2014 at 44 % of total market volume. The annual market statistic in the chart has been provided by Kutay Ülke, Export Manager of Ezinç Metal, one of the largest solar water heater manufacturers in Turkey. The annual study Solar Heat Worldwide from Austrian research institute AEE INTEC uses these industry-based figures for Turkey in all of its latest issues. There are no regular official statistics – neither by the government, nor by GÜNDER, the Turkish Section of the International Solar Energy Society, whose members make up a big part of the national solar thermal industry. In its current publications on the Turkish solar thermal market, GÜNDER uses a more general estimate of “at least 1.5 million m² of collector area” being produced and installed per year.

Turkey: Three Vacuum Tube Manufacturers Eying Export Market

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 2, 2014
SolarsanTurkey‘s three vacuum tube manufacturers, which were set up in response to the high import taxes the government imposed on Chinese vacuum tubes in July 2011, have now become part of an export industry themselves. Lara Solar, Assolar and Solarsan all claim to have already been exporting vacuum tubes to different regions worldwide.

Turkey: New Vacuum Tube Factory

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 30, 2012
Since the government raised the import tax on vacuum tubes in July 2011, Turkey’s national solar thermal industry has undergone some thorough restructuring. Only one month later, seven of the nation’s solar thermal system suppliers and manufacturers teamed up in an effort to construct their own vacuum tube manufacturing unit. The idea behind the unusual cooperation among competitors is that all of the seven companies involved in the project can purchase coated double-glass vacuum tubes from the mutually financed company. The manufacturing unit under the name of Solarsan will be set up in Nazilli, a city in the western province of Aydın.
