September 13 (Solar) – Spanish infrastructure and renewables group Acciona SA (BME:ANA) said today it has started the construction works on a 57.2-MWp photovoltaic (PV) complex in Ukraine.
Comprised of three solar farms, Dymerka 2, 3 and 4, the PV complex will cover an area of 92 hectares in Dymerka, northern Ukraine. It has a nominal capacity of 44 MW and is estimated to require EUR 55 million (USD 63.9m) to be completed.
This solar complex will consist of 174,552 polycrystalline silicon modules and is expected to generate 63 GWh per year, enough to meet the consumption of 26,000 local homes.
With operations scheduled to commence in 2019, Acciona's first solar complex in the country will be selling its output to public utility company Energorynok State Enterprise under a power purchase agreement (PPA) valid until December 31, 2029, the firm noted.
