Trina Solar has delivered 123MW of PV modules to a PV power plant project developed by DTEK, the largest private energy company in Ukraine.
The project — located near Nikopol, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast in central Ukraine — will become the largest PV power facility locally and the largest single PV power station in Europe.
The solar project has a planned capacity of 246MW and will be capable of producing 280 million kWh of solar power per year, ranking among the top three such suppliers in Europe. The power station, for which China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) serves as the contractor, is expected to be completed in early 2019 and be connected to the grid in March.
The government of Ukraine initiated an energy development strategy, aimed at increasing total installed capacity of renewable energy to 5GW by 2020.
“As a global PV company that has maintained steady development over the long term, Trina Solar will continue to promote the application and adoption of clean energy worldwide,” Yin Rongfang, executive vice president of Trina Solar, said.
Trina Solar has sold its products sold to over 100 countries. In 2017, Trina Solar’s module shipments worldwide exceeded 9GW, over 60 percent of which were delivered to overseas markets.
