Two Chinese companies have been selected to build Ukraine’s largest solar project, a 246 MW solar station in Dnipropetrovsk. DTEK, owned by Rinat Akhmetov, has chosen China Machinery Engineering Corporation to do the engineering, procurement, and construction and Seraphim Solar System to supply the polycrystalline solar modules, or panels. Based in Nanjing, Seraphim last year supplied 1.2 MW of panels to a project in Izmail, Ukraine’s Danube port. Seraphim President Polaris Li commented: “This 246 MW solar power plant clearly demonstrates Ukraine’s renewable energy ambitions…Going forward, Seraphim will continue to actively participate in Ukraine’s solar industry development.” Seraphim plans to deliver all the panels for the Dnipropetrovsk project by the end of August.
