About the project:

The contract for the construction of the object was signed on May 12, 2016 in the format of "general contractor". SPP includes three stages and the construction process can be divided into three blocks:

  • The first stage (3,49 MW) was built in December 2016, and its operation began in April 2017. The contract from the state-owned enterprise Energorynok was signed in May 2017. At the same time, we were preparing for the construction of the next stage.
  • The construction of the second stage (1.46 MW) was completed simultaneously with the commissioning of the first one in May 2017. It was put into operation in July, in parallel, the preparatory stage for the construction of the third one also began.
  • The start of operation of the third phase of SPP began in July 2017, the finish line in December of the same year.

All the deadlines corresponded to the plan. All construction and installation activities of the project are executed on time and in accordance with the contract.



The main tasks that the client set for us at the briefings of the project:

— Using the electrical equipment class "A" for construction of SPP;

— The facility must be equipped with an industrial level security system with remote access;

— Avoid shading modules at any time of year;

— A system for monitoring the operation of a SPP in real time with remote access must be established.


During the project implementation we succeeded:

— Reduce power losses by 2% at maximum permissible loads on the sides of DC and AC;

— Increase real output relative to the estimated (PVSyst).
