A solar power plant with a capacity of 1GWh may appear in Chernobyl. The concept of the project will be presented at the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017 in Astana, "Khabar 24" TV channel reports.
Chernobyl is now regarded as a promising area for the implementation of renewable energy projects. A hundred hectares have been allocated for the construction of a solar park in the region. According to the Head of the State Agency of Ukraine on Exclusion Zone Management, Vitaly Petruk, there is a necessary infrastructure for the operation of the station.
"We have available working energy networks that function and are in operation. They were built under the Chernobyl station. Until 2000 the station worked and the networks are designed for a capacity of 4,000 megawatts. Most likely, such an amount will not be drawn due to the physical wear, but up to two megawatts - why not,” shared the Chairman of the State Agency of Ukraine on Exclusion Zone Management, Vitaly Petruk.
At the international exhibition in Astana, the Ukrainian delegation will present the concept of the project in order to find investors.
"First of all, the aim is to find a partner, an investor, in order to get acquainted with the advanced technologies and technologies that are in the world today in the clean energy sector. In Kazakhstan, this forum will be visited by not only the producers of pure energy. There will be venture funds, there will be scientists, there will be all the beau monde that works in the world today to develop clean projects," said the Head of the State Agency on Energy Efficiency of Ukraine, Sergey Savchuk.
