Fuhrlander Windtechnology LLC (Kramatorsk, Donetsk region) intends to produce 17 wind turbines for Ukrainian wind farms in 2018, deputy director for commercial issues Yuriy Shevchenko has told reporters during a visit to Kramatorsk organized by Ecodiya (Ecoaction) and Germanwatch.
“Last year only three units were built. This year we plan to manufacture 17 turbines. The customers are our Ukrainian investors,” he said.
Shevchenko added wind turbines will have different installed capacities: 2.5 MW, 3.3 MW, 3.5 MW, 4 MW and, possibly, 4.5 MW.
“These turbines will be mostly used at wind farms in Mykolaiv region. In addition, one of them is to be installed in Kramatorsk, on the Karachun mountain (later this wind farm will be expanded). In addition, it is planned to install one wind turbine of 4 MW in Kaniv (Cherkasy region),” he said.
According to Shevchenko, the cost of 1 MW of capacity of wind turbines produced by Fuhrlander Windtechnology is about EUR1 billion. For a 4 MW unit, this figure should be lower, at a level of EUR800-850 million.
Fuhrlander Windtechnology is the only manufacturer of modern wind power plants in Ukraine. It is engaged in construction of wind farms. The company produces goods on the site in Kramatorsk.
