3.5 million panels in the oasis in Konya

The building, equipped with many technical infrastructures and digital tools for the operation of the power plant located in Karapınar district of Konya, attracts attention with its futuristic design.


Kalyon Solar Power Plant SCADA Centre, called “Oasis” due to its appearance, instantly monitors the solar energy electricity production data of more than 3.5 million panels.


DESIGNED IN THE LIGHT OF KONYA’S VEGETATION


With the covering materials whose outer surface is inspired by 4 different solar panel designs, overheating of the interior of the building is prevented and an aesthetic and modern appearance is displayed. The inner garden of the SCADA Centre, designed by taking into account the vegetation of the city, offers an atmosphere where renewable energy and nature are in harmony.


Called “OASIS”


SCADA Centre, which acts as the brain of the solar power plant and is called “Oasis” due to its appearance, instantly monitors and analyses the electricity production data of more than 3.5 million solar panels in the power plant. With its design, the SCADA Centre contributes to increasing interest in solar energy in order to meet Turkey’s electricity needs from clean and sustainable sources.


It represents Turkey


Gürler Duman, Deputy General Manager of Kalyon Energy Investments in Charge of Operations, stated that “Power plants, refineries, petrochemical plants and similar large facilities are managed by special and central control rooms due to their strategic importance. Although solar power plants are not very sophisticated on the operational side, we, as Kalyon management, thought from the very beginning that it is a power plant that definitely deserves a central control building, both due to its strategic meaning and importance and its size.”


Duman pointed out that “the SCADA Centre was designed as a magnificent, sustainable building with technological features. He said that they took into consideration the necessity of managing the power plant with an installed capacity of 1350 megawatts from a central control building.”
