Turkey based Sarten Ambalaj partners with Enova, integrated energy vendor


With a shared focus on environmental sustainability, Sarten Ambalaj, a leading Turkish packaging manufacturer, and Enova, a regional leader in integrated energy and multi-technical services, have signed a contract for the installation of rooftop solar solutions across multiple Sarten operational facilities.

The contract represents a further step in the expansion into Türkiye which Enova, a joint venture between Majid Al Futtaim and Veolia, announced last year as part of its growing regional operations. The engineering, procurement, and construction contract covers the installation of rooftop solar photovoltaic turn-key solutions across five areas of Sarten’s operations in Manisa, Türkiye.

Enova specializes in providing its clients with comprehensive and performance-based energy and facilities management solutions, paving the way to achieve financial, operational, and environmental targets. The company also functions as an operations and maintenance provider, acting as a key enabler of energy efficiency in the industrial sector.

Enova CEO, Renaud Capris, said of the contract, “In signing this agreement with Sarten Ambalaj, Enova is continuing its expansion into Türkiye with a key ambition to reduce carbon emissions for our clients through the implementation of comprehensive, performance-based solutions. Sharing our sustainability aspirations, Sarten Ambalaj is setting an example of an ambitious roadmap towards clean energy in the Turkish market, which ideally would follow suit.”

The new contract covers the implementation of turnkey solar PV solutions with a total installed capacity of 9.258 MWp, with 16,987 PV modules generating 13.01 GWh of green electricity per annum. The three-month implementation is backed by two years of operations and management led by Enova under the current contract.

Zeki Sarıbekir, CEO of Sarten, commented, “In achieving our vision of being the leading packaging company in Türkiye, we strive to minimize the environmental effects of our production processes. We are delighted to sign this contract with Enova in support of our environmental policy, as we aim to make a difference across all areas of our operations. The installation of solar PV solutions at five of our major operations reaffirms this commitment and adds value for our stakeholders.”

The PV solar project for Sarten across five locations in Türkiye has been initiated with immediate effect. In addition to Sarten, Enova is focusing its expansion on sectors such as transportation, healthcare, and industry.
