December 30 (Renewables Now) - Norway’s Scatec Solar ASA (OSL:SSO) has hooked to the grid the 32-MW Kamianka plant in Ukraine’s Cherkasy region, thus completing its third project in the country.

The Kamianka solar power facility will begin commercial operations on January 1, 2021. The company executed the project in partnership with Dutch development bank FMO under Ukraine’s feed-in-tariff (FiT) scheme.

The solar park is expected to supply some 37 GWh of electricity annually, powering over 11,000 homes.

“The Kamianka solar power plant will lead to the abatement of more than 15,000 tonnes of CO² emissions, and will contribute to growing the share of renewable energy in the country”, says Raymond Carlsen, CEO of Scatec.

The Oslo-based firm now has nearly 1.6 GW of operational solar parks around the world and is building a further 320 MW, including 203 MW in Ukraine.
