SUNfarming GmbH plans bond issue

SUNfarming GmbH, an international specialist in the realisation of turnkey photovoltaic projects, is planning the issue of a corporate bond depending on the capital market environment.

At the beginning of the new financial year 2018, SUNfarming GmbH had reached a new record order backlog of EUR 24.5 million, which is an increase of 180 % in comparison to the same date in the preceding year. The objective for the next years is to enhance the revenue and the operating result. Therefore, the proceeds from a bond issue are intended to be used foremost for the realisation of new photovoltaic power plants in Germany and abroad as well as to optimise the debt capital structure.

For this purpose, the management has instructed BankM – Representative Office of FinTech Group Bank AG to organise a management roadshow. A potential securities prospectus would be published at www.sunfarming.de. “With the possible corporate bond we would like to optimise our financing options further and put our growth in Germany and abroad on a solid base,” explains Martin Tauschke, the Managing Director of SUNfarming GmbH.

Since its incorporation in 2004, SUNfarming GmbH has covered the full EPC value chain (engineering, procurement, construction) – from planning and development to financing and construction to monitoring and servicing of solar parks. The company has a long-standing customer base of capital investors, local authorities, users of commercial and private in-house electricity generation systems as well as property-holding sister companies belonging to the Schrum-Tauschke cooperation group.

The international team of experienced commercial staff, engineers and technicians has successfully installed a capacity of over 500 MWp. In addition SUNfarming provides technical operation for over 280 MWp in Germany and abroad to third party companies. The group track record is characterised by stable income from these activities and its EPC core business.

SUNfarming completes 3,308 kWp of free-field plants in Turkey

SUNfarming completes 3,308 kWp of free-field plants in Turkey

SUNfarming Eurasia has realized solar parks with a total capacity of 3,308 kWp in the Niğde-Gölçük and Osmaniye-Yaveriye provinces.
5.5 million kilowatt hours of electricity are produced per year, which ranges for example electricity for 1,800 2-person households for one year. The CO2 savings is 4,000 tons annually.
The potential for solar energy in Turkey is huge. The country has up to 2,737 hours of sunshine a year, or 7.5 hours a day. This is the highest solar potential in Europe. The Turkish government wants to increase the share of solar energy to 5 gigawatts by 2023 and cover 30 percent of the total energy demand from renewable sources. This move is intended to make the country less dependent on expensive energy imports, which account for about half of the Turkish trade deficit. At the same time, however, the country is also heavily relying on coal and natural gas for power generation.
The two new SUNfarming solar parks in the Niğde-Gölçük and Osmaniye-Yaveriye regions, with solar radiation of around 1,600 kWh / kWp to 1,660 kWh / kWp, offer the best solar yield for the production of renewable energy, thus contributing to global climate protection.

“SUNfarming combines global expertise with local know-how. Our international commitment to meeting the world’s electricity needs is environmentally and socially acceptable, clean and sustainable, and secures the future of our children. We have been making an international commitment to this for years,” explains Sahin Balkan, CEO SUNfarming Eurasia.

Thousands of new jobs with Food & Energy

Thousands of new jobs with Food & Energy

Job creation, food production and self-sufficiency are objectives that SUNfarming has set itself to combat the causes of migration and flight.

Peter Schrum, founder and principal shareholder of the SUNfarming Group, visited various African countries during his trip abroad in February. The agenda included Namibia, Zambia, South Africa, Tanzania and Mauritius. Together with presidents, ministers and stakeholders, the potential of the Food & Energy projects was discussed for job creation, self-sufficiency in regionally grown food and solar energy production. Talks were also held with representatives from Ethiopia and Senegal and project-preparatory steps were initiated.
Peter Schrum:“Global warming is increasing, which has a devastating effect especially in already arid and drought affected areas in Africa. The result are major refugees flows, our aim is to create help for self-help for the people in their home countries. Our agro-solar greenhouses can produce food even in arid areas with water savings of up to 90%. The solar modules installed on the roof of the greenhouses produce electricity that can be used in the communities. It will create up to 1000 new jobs, including 500 franchise partner, in 10 years per MW/2ha”.
