Kirchdorf/Haag, February 22, 2023. The solar mounting system manufacturer Schletter Group is supporting the earthquake victims in Syria and Turkey and plans to get involved in the reconstruction process. The company is about to open a manufacturing site near Istanbul. Schletter intends to donate the first mounting systems manufactured there for the reconstruction of the power infrastructure.
“We have been active in Turkey and the Middle East for 12 years and have not only built PV plants there, but have also established partnerships and friendships – especially in the earthquake region,” emphasized Taner Öztürk, Managing Director of Schletter Turkey. “The earthquake disaster has therefore deeply affected us.”
As immediate aid, the company has made a monetary donation to “Aktion Deutschland hilft”, which is using the money to finance disaster relief in Turkey and Syria. Furthermore, Schletter’s CEO Florian Roos handed over an aid package to the German-Turkish Forum in Stuttgart last week. Among other things, the registered society is organizing aid deliveries to the affected regions.
In addition, Schletter intends to participate in the reconstruction of the energy infrastructure. For example, the first batch of PV mounting systems produced at the new Turkish plant will go to a local rebuilding project. For this purpose, Schletter will be providing mounting systems for one megawatt of PV output free of charge. Schletter is currently reaching out to project developers and module manufacturers who are also looking to get involved in the region. Interested parties can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
