Kyiv, Ukraine – TIU Canada announces the official opening of its Nikopol solar power plant on January 26. The 10.5 megawatt solar facility is the first investment from the Canadian side under the Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement (CUFTA), which took effect in August 2017. The construction of the site began in June and the total amount of investment is EUR10.5 million.
The event will take place on the grounds of Nikopol Ferroalloy Plant on Friday, January 26 at 3:30 PM, and is open to the public. Attendees will include Canadian diplomats, Ukrainian government officials, the business community, mass media, and the management of TIU Canada. Attendees will have an opportunity to have a walking tour of the facility, ask questions, take photos and videos, and talk with the management of TIU.
The station consists of 32,304 solar panels, with 392 inverters installed to manage the power output. More than 105 kilometers of cables were used during the station's construction, and the area used for the station totals 15 hectares. The amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) eliminated in comparison with coal fueled power stations is 12,738 tonnes per year. Thus, this renewable energy project will provide clean electricity to residents and businesses in the Nikopol area.
