Scatec Solar Starts Commercial Operation of 54 MW in Ukraine

PVTIME – Scatec Solar and partners have grid connected and started commercial operations of the 54 MW Boguslav project in the Kyiv region, Ukraine.

“We are pleased to complete our second project in Ukraine less than ten months after closing the financing. The Boguslav solar plant will lead to the abatement of more than 24,000 tonnes of CO² emissions and contribute to growing the share of renewable energy in the country, says Raymond Carlsen, CEO of Scatec Solar.

The project is realised under Ukraine’s Feed-in-Tariff scheme and is expected to deliver about 61 GWh per year. The Boguslav plant will be providing clean energy for up to 27,000 households. Public land has been leased for an extended time-period and the solar power plants are expected to deliver power also beyond the Feed-in-tariff period.

With this project, Scatec Solar passes the milestone of 1.5 GW in operation globally. In addition, a portfolio of 399 MW is under construction, of which 235 MW in Ukraine.
