China energy storage network: this is the first solar power station in the chernobyl exclusion zone.
The government passed a law in 2016, Ukraine, announced to reopen the brownfield site for commercial development, and plan in this piece of the world's most serious nuclear disaster happened in regional construction 1 gw of solar energy power station.
Since then, many internationally renowned developers have expressed interest in the project.
In early 2017, pv magazine reported that Ukraine was discussing the matter with French energy giant Engie, and the French government led a feasibility study.
While the plant is only a small part of the 1GW target, it is significant because it marks a substantial step forward after months of discussions between the developer and the government.
The size of the project has yet to be determined, but the Ukrainian government says it is seeking the maximum number of 100 mw.
The project, jointly constructed by Rodina and German developer Enerparc AG, has a capacity of 1024 MW and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2017.
According to Rodina, the plant now has 3,762 components installed as an anti-radiation safety measure, and the solar power station is equipped with specially designed assembly systems and scaffolds.
Although this is the first solar project of the exclusion zone, Ukraine but Rodina Enerparc AG and the pair have related experience, in 2016 they had in the nuclear area near the border of belarus construction of a 4.2 MW solar project.
