Activ Solar, a PV developer based in Vienna, Austria, has said it has installed a total of 127.5MW of PV capacity in the first three months of 2013.
Most recently, the company completed the construction of the 54.8MWp Priozernaya solar park and commissioned the 43.4MWp Limanskaya solar park in Odessa, Ukraine. Earlier this year, Activ Solar completed the 29.3MWp Voznesensk solar park bringing a total 127.5MWp of new solar capacity into operation during the first quarter of this year.
The Priozernaya and Limanskay projects, which have been built on former landfill sites, created more than 800 construction jobs and 10 full-time operational jobs.
The Priozernaya project is composed of 50 inverters and 227,744 multicrystalline solar modules installed on a four-row mounting system while the Limanskaya facility is equipped with 41 inverters and 181,192 multicrystalline solar modules installed in a single row system. Together, the two projects will generate 133,940 MWh of electricity every year.
“To date we have successfully put over 420MWp of solar capacity into operation. We are once again proving our unique expertise in the development, finance and construction of utility-scale photovoltaic installations. The Priozernaya and Limanskaya solar parks are great examples of our on-going efforts to ensure the sustainable development of local communities where we operate”, said Kaveh Ertefai, CEO of Activ Solar.
