The Russian heat and power supplier T Plus, a unit of Russia-based industrial conglomerate Renova, has started construction of two solar power plants with a combined capacity of 105 MW in Sorochinsk and Novosergievsky districts, in Russia’s Orenburg region.
The company said that it is now conducting ground works for both facilities, and the their completion and commissioning is planned by early 2019.
The projects are part of the company’s pipeline, which includes among others a recently expanded 40 MW solar park, also located in the Orenburg region, and two more projects located in the regions of Samara (30 MW) and Saratov (25 MW), respectively.
Overall, T Plus has 59 power plants, more than 400 boiler houses and almost 15 thousand kilometers of heat supply networks. Its parent company, Renova group, is also present in the Russian solar industry through Hevel Solar, a PV module producer and project developers it owns in a joint venture with Russian nanotechnology provider Rusnano, which very likely is being the panel provider of all T Plus projects.
