Perovo Solar Power Station, Ukraine



Ground Mounted


Activ Solar has finished the fifth and final construction phase of its 100MW Perovo Solar Power Station in Ukraine. This last development stage, completed on December 28, added a further 20MW to capacity, making Perovo Europe's largest PV system. Building work at Perovo, located on Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula, began in July, and the 200-hectare site has the potential to generate around 132,500MWh of electricity a year. Equipment suppliers for the installation are all tier one companies, and the development has created more than 800 full- and part-time jobs for the local workforce. Funding for the record-breaking system – believed to have cost about €300 million (US$387 million) – came from two Russian banks, VTB Bank OJSC and Sberbank.

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
