Earlier this week, the company completed the second and final phase of the 43.14 MWp Dunayskaya Solar Power Station (Odessa region, Ukraine), bringing the total amount of solar power capacity installed by Activ Solar to 313.35 MWp. The Dunayskaya Solar Power Station is the sixth large-scale solar installation commissioned by Activ Solar to date.
Breaking through the 300 MWp barrier is a key milestone for the company and affirms Activ Solars position as a leading developer and integrator of large solar PV installations. highlights Kaveh Ertefai, CEO of Activ Solar.
Activ Solars combined installations will produce over 400,000 megawatt hours (MWh) of clean electricity per year, enough energy to supply approximately 96,000 households. These installations will save over 325,000 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per annum. Activ Solars projects have stimulated the local economy with the creation of over 150 direct full-time green jobs and over 2,750 construction jobs.
The largest individual projects implemented by Activ Solar include the Perovo and Ohotnikovo Solar Power Stations, 105.56 MWp and 82.65 MWp respectively. The company maintains a strategic focus on emerging solar markets offering long-term potential for photovoltaics.
Southern Ukraine is a good strategic fit for us, because it benefits from high levels of irradiation all year round but lacks sustainable local energy supply. Ukraine will remain a key market for Activ Solar as we continue to diversify into other emerging solar markets, says Kaveh Ertefai.
