Canadian companies seek to invest in alternative power units in Luhansk region – MP
A consortium of Canadian companies seeks to support the creation of a joint project with Ukraine to install "green" power units in Luhansk region, which would allow stabilizing supply of electricity in this region, Head of the Verkhovna Rada committee for foreign affairs MP Hanna Hopko has said.
Hopko wrote on her Facebook page on Tuesday that with support of the Canadian government representatives of Canadian companies visited Kyiv and eastern Ukraine.
She said that the arrival of foreign investors in Donbas is also the compelling argument in restoring the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine.
"We believe in Luhansk region. Our investment is a reference project to achieve the strategic goal – to show investment opportunities of the region in the renewable energy sphere," Hopko said, citing representatives of Canadian Commercial Corporation and business companies she heard at the meeting.
She said that a top priority project is the creation of a joint venture in Ukraine to support power independence in Luhansk region.
"The initiative we are supporting would allow stabilizing supply of electricity and the operation of power lines in Luhansk region via the implementation of a project on the installation of alternative "green" units," the lawmaker said.
The solution for reconstruction of infrastructure would be presented by the consortium of Canadian companies consisting of S2E Technologies, DAI, GoldLeaf EGF and Capital Hill Group using solarcell arrays made in Canada, Hopko said.
