The Australian solar firm Dyesol plans to construct a major production line for the manufacturing of perovskite solar cells in Turkey. The Development Bank of Turkey (TKB) has issued a non-binding letter of intent to invest in a joint venture between Dyesol and the Turkish solar company Nesli DSC.

The two partners will start construction of a prototype facility in the town of Mersin in 2016. The venture plans to begin mass-production in 2018. The plant production will be aimed at utility applications and building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV).
