Girsivka, Zaporizhia region, UKRAINE, June 1st, 2020 - GE Renewable Energy and EuroCape Ukraine LLC, have started installation works at the Zaporizhia Onshore Wind Farm in southeast Ukraine. The phase one of the project, a 98-megawatt (“MW”) wind farm, includes twenty-seven GE’s 3.6 MW onshore wind turbines, the highest performing model in its class, with a hub height of 110 m and 137-meter rotor. As part of the construction of First Phase, it is also planned to construct own substation and high-voltage transmission lines with a total voltage of 330 kV.
The wind farm is expected to be commissioned in 4th quarter of this year and to produce over 330,000 MW hours of clean energy per year powering approximately 170,000 households. Upon full completion of up to a total of 500 MW, this wind project will be the largest wind power facility in Ukraine powering approximately 780,000 homes and one of the top five largest operating onshore wind farms in Europe.
