The feasibility study was conducted by France’s Tractebel Engineering SA. The authors of the report concluded that the 1.2 GW solar park is feasible, despite the current radioactive contamination levels in the area.
Project developer Rodina today announced that construction is underway on the first solar power plant to be built on land inside the Chernobyl exclusion zone.
The French government will provide an unspecified sum to conduct the feasibility study for the giant PV project.
An area of around 2.5 million square meters will be leased for a PV project with a maximum capacity of 100 MW.
The French energy developer is holding discussions with the Ukrainian government about the possibility of building huge solar farm in radioactive zone.
The prime minister of Ukraine said large-scale solar projects to be built in the contaminated area of the nuclear disaster will be selected through clear and transparent bidding rules.
In 2017, 54 new solar projects with a total capacity of 460 MW will be implemented enabling the country to exceed 1 GW of installed PV plants.
