Perovo Solar Power Station, Ukraine

Specs

Size:
100MW

Type:
Ground Mounted

Status:
Completed

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.

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
