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.
Including the new plants, Hevel now has 120 MW of solar parks in Orenburg and 165 MW in Astrakhan.
