KATERYNIVKA Solar PV Power Plant

In 2019 KATERYNIVKA PV Power Plant built in the Dnipropetrovsk region for the customer Solar Estate (Umitli Group). The station located in an area of ​​20 hectares. The total capacity of photovoltaic modules is 13.5 MW, with an annual production of electricity of 16850 MWh.

The main load-bearing structures for all elements and structures are geo-screws. The mountain structures, the switchgear building, the control center, and all the 0.4/35 package transformer substations built on screw piles. AVENSTON completely abandoned the use of concrete in the construction of a PV-plant.

KATERYNIVKA PV Power Plant is an environmentally friendly facility.

The ground based industrial solar power plant was built by Avenston to operate at a “green” tariff. According to the project, the work of this solar power plant is fully synchronized with the external grid. Design, supply of equipment and all construction and installation works were completed very quickly, as it was previously agreed with the customer. The commercial on-grid solar power plant is based on polycrystalline silicon solar modules and string solar inverters. Voltage conversion is carried out using several transformer substations, which are connected to a single switchgear. The construction of solar power plants of this type is one of the key competencies of our company, as well as services for the design or maintenance of solar power farms.

Solar power plants are one of the key competencies for companies belonging to the Avenston group. We provide any necessary services for solar energy projects, starting from the support of the development stage to maintenance of already built photovoltaic power plants or systems. All the main stages of the implementation of such projects are carried out by us independently or with the involvement of selected partners. In the second case, all key processes are managed and controlled by Avenston’s in-house project managers. Our portfolio includes a large number of designed and built industrial solar PV power plants, home solar power plants, as well as other projects in related areas.

Solar forecasting in Ukraine

Weather systems result in strong variability in the available solar radiation across the day. This means that solar plant power output is impacted, with strong changes in energy generation across the day. As Ukraine adds more solar energy to its electricity grid, it is becoming important to predict these changes in energy generation from hours to days ahead.
