China Sunergy Co. Ltd. has set up a new manufacturing facility in Istanbul, Turkey, with local partner Seul Energy Investment Corp., a solar system provider, solar project developer and installer in Turkey.

In September, the two companies signed agreements to jointly invest in three newly established companies under the name CSUN Eurasia. They will produce PV cells and PV modules in Turkey and invest in downstream solar projects in Turkey and neighboring countries.

The first 150 MW solar module line installed in the new facility is expected to begin producing solar panels in January 2013, China Sunergy says. A 100 MW solar cell line is currently under construction and will begin operations in March.

The company is also currently planning to move an additional 200 MW of equipment to the Turkey plant from existing facilities in Shanghai in the first quarter of 2013 and to gradually ramp up production in the first half of next year.
