Upsolar has established local offices in Istanbul and Singapore. The company says these locations will enable it to better serve the emerging solar markets in Turkey and Southeast Asia.
Ioannis Markatatos, former head of Upsolar's operations in Greece, will become general director of Turkey and Greece. Roy Li, recently head of Upsolar in Japan, will become managing director of the Asia Pacific region.
Upsolar says it has plans to develop 29 MW of solar projects in Turkey through partnerships with local engineering, procurement and construction firms. In addition to its sales office in Istanbul, the company will open a local warehouse for solar products near Antalya.
