December 4 (Renewables Now) - Russian solar company Hevel announced on Tuesday the commissioning of two solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants with a combined capacity of 55 MW.

The company started feeding electricity into the grid from the 25-MW Dombarovskaya solar park in the Orenburg region and the 30-MW Limanskaya facility in the Astrakhan region on December 1.

The slightly smaller plant has the capacity to produce some 30 million kWh of electricity per year, while the 30-MW station can generate about 35 million kWh. The company noted that all components for the Dombarovskaya project were manufactured locally.
