In the wind energy sector, DTEK Renewables is represented by the Botievo Wind Farm with the installed capacity of 200 MW. It is the biggest wind farm in Ukraine and is among the five largest wind parks of the Central and Eastern Europe.
The company also implements the project of development of Prymorskaya WPP with a capacity of 200 MW in Zaporizhzhya Region.
In 2017 DTEK Renewables implemented it¢s first project in the solar energy sector. The company constructed Tryfanovska Solar Farm with the installed capacity of 10 MW in Kherson Region.
Botievo Wind Farm was commissioned in 2012. The farm operates 65 Vestas wind turbines. The total investment in the Botievo Wind Farm amounted to EUR 340 million.
Trifanivska solar power plant is the company’s pilot solar energy project. The plant’s design capacity is 10 MW. The construction of Trifanivska SPP started in March and was completed in July 2017. The facility is equipped with 37 thousand solar panels supplied by JA Solar (China), and ABB’s inverters manufactured in Italy.
The plant will produce 11–12 million kW·h of green energy a year. This is enough to power four thousand households. Trifanivska SPP was commissioned and began generating green kW·h for the United Energy Systems of Ukraine in August 2017. During five months of operation in 2017 it produced 3.8 million kW·h of electric power.
Wind farm in Primorsk with a capacity of 200 MW is DTEK Renewables second project in the wind power industry.
The company plans to complete the construction of wind electricity plant stage I in 2018. In early 2019 Primorskaya WEP will be connected to the United Energy Systems of Ukraine and begin generating green energy. Two stages of Primorskaya WEP, 100 MW each, are scheduled for commissioning in 2020.
Supply, installation and maintenance of 3-megawatt wind turbines for Primorskaya WEP will be provided by General Electric.
The wind farm will produce 650 to 700 million kW·h of green energy a year. Resulting from the operation of the Primorsk WEP, CO2 emissions into the atmosphere will be reduced by 600-700 thousand tonnes annually, due to the decrease in the load of traditional generation facilities.

Orlovka Wind Farm with a capacity of 100 MW is DTEK’s third project in the wind power sector.
The construction of the wind farm is planned for 2018 and will last until December 2019. The commissioning of Orlovka WF and its connection to the United Energy System of Ukraine is expected by the end of 2019.
Realization of this project will contribute to the ecological and social state of the region.
The expected green power production of about 400 GWt per year will reduce CO2 emissions by 382 thousand tons annually. Moreover, during the construction and exploitation of Orlovka WF new jobs will be created.

Nikopol Solar Power Plant is the second project of DTEK Renewables in the solar energy sector. Once the construction is completed, the Nikopolska SPP will become the largest solar power plant in Ukraine and enter the TOP 3 of largest SPP in Europe. Its projected capacity is 200 MW AC.
In April 2018 DTEK signed the agreement with Chinese corporation CMEC for design and construction of Nikopolska SPP. The construction has already started and is supposed to be completed by the end of 2018.
The Nikopolska SPP will supply more than 280 mln kWh of “green” energy every year, which will help to reduce CO2 emissions by 300 thousand tons annually.
Implementation of this project will contribute to the social state of the region as well. During the construction and exploitation of Nikopol SPP new jobs will be created, and the local budgets will receive millions of tax payments.
In February 2019, the company announced the launch of a new project in the renewable energy sector of Ukraine – the Pokrovska SPP, with a capacity of 240 MW (AC). It will consist of 874 thousand panels,to be located in the Nikopol district of the Dnipropetrovsk region - on the lands of a former manganese-mining quarry. This territory belongs to the category of non-agricultural reclaimed land.
The preparatory works on the project began in February 2019. The German Siemens corporation has been selected as the general contractor for the construction of a 35/150 kV power collection substation, withdelivery of all key equipment such as transformers, open and closed switchgears, and control systems.
The supplier of solar panels is the Chinese company Risen.
Thanks to the operation of this SPP, we plan to generate about 400 million kWh of “green” electricity, which will reduce carbon dioxide emissions released into the atmosphere by 420 thousand tons. Investment in the project will be about 200 million euros.
