Hevel Group has started construction its first 10 MW solar power project in Volgograd region. The Russian company won the project in a competitive bidding round in 2014. Once fully operational in Q1/2018, the plant is anticipated to generate 12 million kWh of clean energy annually. Construction work is likely to be completed by September 2017.

Recently, Hevel Group announced that its cumulative solar power commissioned capacity has touched 100 MW (see Hevel Group Achieves 100 MW Milestone).

The 10 MW Volgograd plant is being developed for Russian oil company Lukoil. Project location is the territory of Lukoil’s Volgograd refinery. Once the project is commissioned, Hevel will hand over the plant to the oil company. Lukoil already owns a 9 MW solar power plant in Romania and a 1.25 MW plant in Bulgaria, both on unused industrial sites of the refineries.
