Vienna based Activ Solar announced recently the completion and start of commissioning of a 31.55 megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) power station located in the village of Mityaevo, Crimea (Ukraine). Activ Solar acted as turn-key EPC provider and will operate the facility going forward.
The ground-mounted power station houses over 134,000 polycrystalline solar modules installed in double rows and connected by over 440 kilometers of cable. The Mitayevo Solar Power Station spans over 59 hectares of land and is expected to produce approximately 40,000 megawatt hours of electricity per annum, enough to supply 8,000 households with clean energy.
“This is the fourth large-scale PV project completed by Activ Solar in Crimea, where we have installed over 215 MW to date”, says Kaveh Ertefai, CEO of Activ Solar. “A significant portion of Crimea’s electricity generation is now produced by solar energy. Activ Solar’s present installations save around 230,000 tons of carbon emissions each year on the peninsula”, he adds.
