Martifer Solar has built a new PV plant in the Vinnytsia region of Ukraine. The 8 MW PV project, called Shargorod, represents one of the most challenging projects to date that the company has successfully completed in the country.
“This new 8 MW plant is a significant achievement for the team as it strongly displays our company’s ability to adapt and manage complex projects under extreme conditions,” said Francisco Queirós, Country Manager for Martifer Solar in Ukraine. “In addition, this PV project is one of the first of its magnitude to satisfy the current local-content requirements in place within the country. We are proud to work closely in our partnership with Rengy Development to maximize the potential for solar development in the Ukrainian market.”
This new PV project denotes the sixth project which Martifer Solar has built in Ukraine for its Client, Rengy Development, which amounts to a total portfolio of 29 MW of utility-scale PV implemented in the country since August 2012.
“As we maintain our investment and development of solar projects in Ukraine, we continue to rely on Martifer Sola,” said Narek Harutyunyan, Managing Director of Rengy Development. “We have shared several success stories in the Ukrainian market and this 8 MW plant surpassed our expectations given the current situation in the country.”
Martifer Solar completed the 8 MW PV plant on an area of approximately 160,000 m2, using 33,000 modules installed on fixed structures. The Shargorod plant is expected to produce an estimated 9.2 GWh/year.
