The up-to-500MW project is expected to be one of the largest wind facilities both in Ukraine and the entire Eastern Europe, according to recent statements from the Ukrainian State Architectural and Construction Inspectorate (USACI).
The plant should be officially commissioned by 2019.
The cost of the project is estimated at $500 million, the majority of which is expected to be provided by the Chinese company and Chinese lenders.
TBEA is in talks with the Mykolayiv authorities over the necessary permits for the new facility. Construction is scheduled to begin in November-December.
The 200MW Botievskaya project, located in Zaporizhia, southeast Ukraine — and part of the DTEK Priazovskiy wind complex — is currently the largest wind power project in the country.
