Chinese solar products manufacturer Jiangsu Seraphim Solar System (Seraphim) has secured a contract to supply its 330W solar modules to a 246MW Ukraine solar project.
The project is reported to be Ukraine’s largest renewable energy power plant to date, where China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) is serving as the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contractor and Seraphim is the sole module supplier.
Developed by Ukraine energy group DTEK, the solar photovoltaic (PV) project will be built in Dnepropetrovsk, central Ukraine.
Seraphim president Polaris Li said: “Seraphim is particularly proud to be the sole module supplier for this landmark project. It rewards years of hard work and demonstrates the global recognition of Seraphim’s bankable manufacturing processes — including our reliable brand image.
“This 246MW solar power plant clearly demonstrates Ukraine’s renewable energy ambitions. We are happy to see how our high standards and professional services bring real value to our clients.”
As part of the terms of the contract, Seraphim will deliver its poly modules to the project site before the end of August this year.
Upon completion of the project, the solar plant will be able to generate enough clean power to meet the electricity needs of more than 100,0000 citizens, while reducing carbon emissions by 300,000t a year.
The Ukrainian Government aims to increase the renewable energy share from 3.8% to 11% by 2020, and, is investing $3.4bn into solar development as part of this goal.
