The first phase of the 500-MW wind farm complex in Zaporizhia region of Ukraine initiated operations in May 2020, a supplier for the project announced.

US building materials group Penetron, which provided crystalline waterproofing technology for structural concrete foundations, said that the first phase had been completed on time.


The wind farm so far features 27 wind turbines supplied by GE Renewable Energy, a 150-kV central power distribution station and two 150/35/10-kV substations. It was constructed on the shores of the Sea of Azov.


The whole complex will be equipped with 167 GE wind turbines, which will be capable of powering up more than 350,000 local homes.


The wind farm will sell its output under a power purchase agreement (PPA) with state-owned enterprise Energorynok and will benefit from a 10-year fixed rate feed-in tariff (FiT).
