The authorities of Yakutia and Hevel Group signed an agreement on cooperation in the field of electricity supply to isolated settlements of the republic through the construction of autonomous hybrid power plants based on solar energy.
The document was signed within the framework of 5th International Conference ‘Development of Renewable Energy Sources in the Far East’, which takes place in Yakutsk June 22-24. The head of Yakutia, Egor Borisov, noted that the Conference became a real platform for establishing cooperation and business contacts of companies in the field of renewable energy sources. This year, the event with the participation of 112 companies from the Russian Federation, Japan, China, USA, Germany, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and other countries is held in Yakutsk for the fifth time.
The agreement between the republic and the Hevel Group of companies presupposes the implementation of an investment project in Yakutia for the construction of autonomous diesel-solar power plants using advanced technical solutions. The coordinator of the project investor is the engineering division of the Hevel Group. It is planned that the Company will supply high-efficiency solar modules produced at its own plant in Novocheboksarsk. The government of the republic, in turn, will provide the project with information and organizational support.
The project will address the priority state task to ensure uninterrupted and reliable supply in isolated and autonomous territories through the use of solar energy.
The construction of solar generation facilities will ensure the growth of tax revenues to the regional budget, create new jobs in the republic and allow regional enterprises to be involved in the construction and installation works and the manufacture of supporting structures.
