Ukraine-based DTEK has signed a deal with GE Renewable Energy for the procurement, installation and maintenance of 26 wind turbines.
The turbines will be installed for stage one of the 200 MW Primorskaya wind plant, located in the Zaporizhia region of Ukraine.
GE’s onshore wind business will provide 26 3 MW-class turbines, which will be manufactured in Europe. Construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year.
Pete McCabe, president and CEO of GE’s onshore wind business, says, “GE Renewable Energy is pleased to work with DTEK, the largest independent power producer (IPP) and leader in the renewable energy sector in Ukraine, on this exciting project. Together, we will be able to provide affordable, reliable and clean energy to the residents and businesses of the Zaporizhia region.”
The two stages of the Primorskaya wind farm are scheduled to be commissioned before 2020. The plant will produce 650-700 million kWh of green energy on a yearly basis, says DTEK.
