Another Innovational Solar Solution of ACCIONA and Ukrainian UDP Renewables
June 3, 2019, is considered a significant date for the alternative energy industry development in Ukraine. This day Ukrainian company UDP Renewables and Spanish “renewable” authority ACCIONA have signed up the agreement about constructing another two solar power plants in the Odesa region. They promise this project to become the real “eco” remedy for the environment. Read about that in this article.
New Solar Solution to Expect of this Partnership
ACCIONA has high expectations as regards the Ukrainian project. According to the commentary provided by some reliable source, ACCIONA has invested around thirty-one million euros in the solar project in Ukraine. Construction works on both solar stations are to get started in June this year.
In one of the interviews, the Founder of UDP Renewables Group Vasyl Khmelnytskyi was proud to share the info that this is not the primary cooperation between two companies (the very first solar power station started functioning in Kyiv region in 2017). The partnership gives great opportunities to develop the solar power industry that, in reality, is new for Ukraine. They see ACCIONA the world leader in this sphere thus, a reliable partner as well.
That means not only financial guarantees but also best practices and the highest standards of the solution implementation. This thing is considered the most important at the stage of market formation that Ukraine undergoes nowadays.
Impressive Physics Aspects with an “Eco” Prefix
The first solar power plant “Hudsovka-Solar” with a capacity of twenty megawatts will be designed near Ismail. The other one called “Artsyz-Solar” with fourteen megawatts will be located on the territory of Pavlovsky rural council of Artsyzsky region. Both projects will have the peak power as of twenty-six and eighteen megawatts accordingly.
The total power capacity of both plants will constitute around thirty-five megawatt. This means four percent of the electricity consumption volume in the Odesa region. To be more precise, this is comparable to the energy consumption of twenty-three thousand Ukrainian households.
These objects will be equipped with polycrystalline silicon panels mounted on stationary structures.
Speaking about being eco-friendly, setting to work the plants will allow emissions prevention in the amount as of about fifty-five tons of carbon dioxide. They report that both projects are to be finished in the fourth quarter of this year. Moreover, UDP Renewables plans to become the Ukrainian leader in energy production using environmentally friendly sources.
Recently, in Ukraine, they witness a kind of designboom of solar power plants. The reason for that is the so-called “green tariff.” The state-owned company Ukrenergo buys electricity from such stations at relatively high prices. Nowadays, the state pays the manufacturer around fifteen euro cents for each kilowatt per hour of such electricity, while the consumer gets electricity much cheaper (about four euro cents).
Thus, the purchase of “eco” electricity is actually conducted at a loss. Strategically, this is performed in order to attract investors to Ukraine for the building of such stations as well as saving the environment.
