Chornobyl zone agency extends deadline for submission of bids to build solar power plants until March
Ukraine's State Agency for Managing Chornobyl Exclusion Zone has extended a deadline of submitting bids for the allocation of land parcels to build solar power plants in the Chornobyl zone until March 1, 2017.
"Taking into account many requests from foreign investors to increase the terms for submitting bids to implement the solar power plant projects in the exclusion zone… it was decided to postpone the deadline for submitting the bids until March 1 [initially it was planned to finish it on January 1]," the press service of the agency reported.
As reported, the total area earmarked for construction of solar power plants is 1,172 ha.
There is an opportunity of introducing a pilot project: to select one of the preliminary determined parcels where it is possible to place solar power plants with the installed capacity of up to 20 MW.
Around 2 ha are required to build a solar power plant with the projected capacity of 1 MW.
