    Ukraine builds a mega wind farm

    March 19, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras



      Russia's invasion of Ukraine more than a year ago left the European country struggling to take out some of its power generation capacity. Ukraine's Energy Minister Herman Halushchenko said late last year that the nation had "lost about 90% of installed wind and 45% to 50% of solar capacity. It is a huge loss. Despite this and in response to the loss of capacity, a mega wind farm is being built in the country. This is the Tyligulska plant, which is under construction by the Dtek Group and already has 114 megawatts of capacity in operation. However, the total generation that will be capable of delivering up to 500 megawatts. "Despite all the challenges of this war year, Dtek has built an additional 114 MW of green power generation for Ukraine. It has been a difficult task, but thanks to the high levels of professionalism and courage of the company's employees, the new wind farm with 19 wind turbines will go into operation this spring Ukraine creates and Russia destroys," Maxim Timchenko, CEO of the construction company. The project is located in the Mykolaiv region of southern Ukraine and is part of the nation's efforts to achieve its goal of 30 gigawatts of renewable energy. Currently, Ukraine's installed renewable energy capacity, including temporary installations, is about 10 gigawatts. If the country achieves the capacity it expects by 2030, it would be half of the country's total generation. However, the Ukrinform agency reports that massive attacks by Russia on energy facilities in Ukraine have caused damage to 45 works. It is therefore possible that this target cannot be met. Therefore, both the company behind this megaproject and the government are looking for ways to finance the infrastructure. Among these are donations with international partners. "The company is building new energy facilities because we believe in Ukraine's victory. And we are sending a signal to international partners that it is possible to invest in Ukraine today without waiting for the end of the war," Timchenko concluded. The company reported that workers at the park are currently wearing bulletproof vests to finish the Tyligulska works.
