Austria-based PV developer Activ Solar has commissioned the 34MW Bolgrad Solar Park in Odessa, Ukraine.
The project is the fifth the company has completed in the southern part of the region, which is said to lack local electricity generation.
Spanning 63 hectares of land, Bolgrad is expected to produce 41,300MWh of electricity annually, sufficient power to supply around 10,000 households.
It consists of 26 separate inverters and 141,812 individual modules, installed on a double-row mounting system.
Kaveh Ertefai, chief executive of Activ Solar, said: “The southern region of Ukraine remains particularly attractive for photovoltaic installations because it offers high levels of solar irradiation and has large areas of unutilised land, unsuitable for agricultural purposes. Having a highly skilled local execution team, which supports the development and construction of the solar project pipeline in this area, reinforces Activ Solar’s commitment to the sustainable energy development in the region.”
