Russian solar module maker and PV project developer, Hevel Solar, a joint venture between Russian industrial conglomerate, Renova Group and nanotechnologies provider, JSC Rusnano, has grid connected its 10 MW Volgograd Solar Power Plant, which was built near the city of Volgograd, in the southwest of Russia.
The project was selected under Russia’s first renewable energy auction, held in 2014. Hevel said routine activities for the project were completed on time and the new facility started the scheduled power deliveries to the grid.
Three more projects selected in the 2014 auction were connected to the grid in early December: the 15 MW Pugachyovsky solar plant and the 5 MW Orlov-Gai facility in the Saratov region; and the 9 MW Isyangulovo solar park in the Republic of Bashkortostan.
Including the Volgograd project, the company’s grid-connected PV capacity contributing to the Wholesale Power Market and delivering power to the grid, has reached 139 MW.
Hevel is only active in the Russian market, where its PV project pipeline totals 500 MW. The company has also recently announced it will increase production capacity at its module manufacturing facility in Novocheboksarsk, in the Chuvash Republic, from 160 MW to 250 MW by the end of 2018.
