November 11 (Renewables Now) - Turkish conglomerate MNG has plans to install about 200 MW of solar power capacity in Ukraine, as part of which it will build next year a 5-MW park in Zhytomyr region.

The Zhytomyr Regional State Administration announced last week the signing of a memorandum of cooperation with MNG for the USD-5-million (EUR 4.5m) project. Construction of the photovoltaic (PV) plant in the Bronykivska united territorial community will begin in April 2020. 

The regional government said that as part of the solar project, the electrical network in the area will also undergo an upgrade.

Ukraine had 2 GW of installed PV capacity at the end of 2018. Under the medium scenario in SolarPower Europe's Global Market Outlook (GMO), the country will add 6 GW by 2023.
