The figure of the week: UAH 83.2 million is the expected value of Ukrgazvydobuvannya tender for the SPP construction
Optimization of consumption and energy production is a necessary element of strategic development for each company. The largest Ukraine’s gas producer decided to reduce its own gas consumption by using solar energy. For that end, Ukrhazvydobuvannya announced a tender worth UAH 83.2 million for the construction of a photovoltaic station. SPP will be constructed in the Kharkiv region, where Shebelinka refinery is located. The company sees this project as a future profitable business.
State-owned companies already have an example of using their own territories to locate RES facilities. In July of this year, Ukrtransgaz already reported on the first million hryvnias gained from electricity generation by its own solar station, which is located on the roof.
