Risen Energy has signed off on a 323MW PV module supply contract from DTEK Renewables for Ukraine’s largest solar power station. As part of the contract, Risen will provide all the modules required for the 240 MWac Pokrovskaya SPP project.

According to Risen Energy, the project, built as the largest solar power station in Ukraine, is expected to provide a significant contribution to reach Ukraine's energy targets in RES.

Located in the Dnipropetrovsk region in central Ukraine, the installation will have an installed capacity of 240 MWac and will be fully equipped with Risen Energy's 72-cell 370W high-efficiency PERC monocrystalline modules. Once completed, the facility will be able to accommodate the electricity needs of more than 200,000 households in Ukraine and help cut carbon dioxide emissions by 400,000 tons annually.

With RES accounting for just a 2% share in Ukraine’s electrical balance in 2018, the national government signed off on a national energy development plan, aimed at increasing share of renewable energy in final energy consumption to 25 % by 2035.

Risen Energy sales vice president Zhao Zelin noted: “As the exclusive PV module supplier for the power project, Risen Energy has been recognized for its high-quality products, efficient production capacity and sound growth. The signing of the contract will allow both companies to leverage their respective advantages to facilitate construction of the project. The collaboration with DTEK Renewables will become a major step in the company's further expansion into Ukraine, an energy market that is experiencing a transformative period and has an urgent need for renewable energy products.

“Based on its vision of creating a better life for mankind through green energy and its strategy of focusing on both quality of and services for products and technologies, Risen Energy plans to continuously drive the transformation of the Ukrainian energy market. Meanwhile, the company plans to accelerate construction of the power project through the timely delivery of efficient modules, and, by doing so, enhance its brand influence and accelerate its expansion into the Ukrainian green energy market.”
