The newly commissioned solar plant has a total capacity of 323MW. As the exclusive supplier of the modules for the the Pokrovskaya SPP project, Risen Energy managed to deliver 873,756 solar panels on demand. These modules were placed in a disused, 437-hectare mining quarry, which DTEK said could not be used for agriculture. The whole Pokrovskaya SPP project construction was completed in only 8 months while its efficiency as well as quality received recognition and praises from various parties.

DTEK CEO, Maxim Timchenko said, “For DTEK, the Pokrovska SPP solar power plant is a quality milestone and proof of our growing expertise. With the experience we gained in our previous projects, we have built a professional team, procured and installed electrical equipment from the best world manufacturers and ensured the successful integration of the solar power plant into the country’s energy system. “

“It’s amazing that the project was finished and connected in such short time.” Commented President of Risen Energy Group, Xie Jian. “In January of 2019, DTEK signed the exclusive module contract with Risen Energy for Pokrovskaya SPP’s construction and Risen Energy was able to deliver all modules on demand. The delivery was completed ahead of time during the booming PV market period. Risen Energy could not have finished that task without DTEK’s support, understanding and trust.” Xie Jian added.
