HSA Energy, which closed the year 2022 with domestic demands, set the target of exporting 15% of its production with the ‘Made in Turkey’ label in the new year with new markets.
HSA Energy manufactures both Blue Pine Solar Panels and the products of JA Solar, one of the important players in the global market, in its factory located in Manisa OSB. With the increasing electricity prices and the decisions supporting the acceleration of energy transformation towards renewable sources, it decided to increase its capacity to meet the increasing demand intensity and realized its second factory investment and started test production in December.
Emphasizing that the solar energy sector is one of the fastest growing sectors not only in our country, but also in the world, HSA Energy Foreign Trade Director Kıvanç Işık stated that the 2023 targets of HSA Energy will not be limited to Turkey with the following words: To grow confidently by producing the right technology panel. Our targets for 2022, which we set for ourselves when starting operations in 2021, were to double the capacity of our factory, which we started production with 250MW/Year capacity, in the middle of the year. However, with the intense demand, we increased our target again and quadrupled our production volume. Now, we continue our production with the same quality with 2 factories in a single campus with a capacity of 1000MW/Year.” Said.
Stating that they will start exporting in 2023, Işık said, “We opened our stand as a participant at the Intersolar Europe Fair in May and we observed very clearly that there is a much greater demand for solar energy in Europe, especially due to the situation brought about by the Russian-Ukrainian war. Just like in our country, there are problems in equipment supplies in the European market due to the supply-demand imbalance. What’s more, there is an insufficient number of companies that will set up and contract this work. There is also a huge market for EPC companies in Turkey. For example, Germany has a minimum 15 GW installation target per year, and a part of this demand, from equipment to labor and even engineering services, can be easily met by Turkish companies. In addition, the American market, which has grown with significant increases, is another export region we are interested in, and there are serious government incentives for solar energy here. We also want to improve the export of Blue Pine Solar Panels and open our products to new markets.” Said.
