Oslo, 29 August 2019: Scatec Solar and partner Rengy Development have grid connected and reached commercial operation for the 47 MW Rengy project in the south of Ukraine.
“We are very proud to have started commercial operations in Ukraine just 13 months after securing the project. The solar power plant will deliver clean energy to around 15,000 households and contribute to avoid about 51,000 tonnes of carbon emissions per year, supporting Ukraine’s renewable energy target” says Raymond Carlsen, CEO of Scatec Solar.
The project is realised under the country’s fixed Feed-in-Tariff scheme until 2030 and is expected to produce about 56 GWh per year. Public land has been leased for an extended time-period and the plants are expected to deliver power also beyond the Feed-in-tariff period.
Scatec Solar reached a major milestone earlier this month when the asset portfolio exceeded 1 GW in operation and the company now has 1,063 MW in operation. In addition, Scatec Solar has another 841 MW under construction on four continents.
