DTEK Energy Holding has signed a second contract with U.S. General Electric to supply equipment for Prymorska wind farm with a total capacity of 200 MW, the press service of the holding has reported. The first contract to supply equipment for Prymorska wind farm (100 MW) was signed in December 2017. It will be completed at the end of 2018.
The second stage of the 100 MW capacity will be also built in Zaporizhia region. The start of construction is the fourth quarter of 2018.
The land wind power division of GE will supply 26 wind power turbines with a capacity of 3.8 MW each to Prymorska wind plant. This model of a wind turbine demonstrates high performance even in conditions of low wind speed.
The total planned investment in the second stage of Prymorska wind farm will be about EUR150 million, which is comparable with investments in the construction of the first stage.
After the completion of the second stage of Prymorska wind farm, the portfolio of DTEK’s implemented projects in land wind generation will reach 400 MW.
“Our ambitions are to build 1,000 MW of solar and wind power plants by the end of 2019. This is an ambitious goal requiring huge investments by the standards of Ukraine. The construction cost of such a capacity exceeds EUR1 billion,” DTEK CEO Maksym Tymchenko said.
DTEK Renewables is the operating company that manages DTEK’s assets in the renewable energy sphere.
