Turkey positions for large-scale DSC manufacture
14/04/2009

Dyesol has been engaged by Nesli Dye Solar Cells Enerji Sistemleri Sanayi Ve Ticaret Anonim Sirketi (Nesli) to complete a detailed feasibility study establishing a glass-based DSC volume manufacturing facility in Turkey. Nesli has secured a line of funding for a phased development program, with initial capacity growing in discrete stages to 100,000m2 before expanding to a 500,000m2 manufacturing capability in the subsequent stage. Nesli is supported in the commercialisation by the Turkish Development Bank (Turkiye Kalkinma Bankasi – TKB).

The Contract for Supply with Nesli for this initial phase is valued at €200,000 (approx. AU$400,000) and is part of a potential €60 Million program involving Dyesol providing on-going technical support, production equipment and DSC manufacturing materials. This ensures a long-term strategic relationship between the two companies, continuing demand for Dyesol materials and a defined growth path for the technology.

Gordon Thompson, Dyesol Director, says “The feasibility study provides the launching pad for a long-term strategic relationship which will be a win-win situation for both Nesli and Dyesol in seeding and growing the DSC market in Turkey”. Unal Kazak, Director of Nesli, agrees “The decision to engage the world leaders in the commercialisation of DSC to undertake this study and be our long term partners in a secure relationship is essential to achieve growth targets”.
