The activity on the implementation of the Dnipro-Bug WPP project continues!
On December 21, the active head of the Kherson Regional State Administration Serhii KOZYR met with Tom HANSON (Greenworx Holding), the co-owner of the 110 MW Dnipro-Bug wind farm in Stanislav amalgamated community, and the management of the Turkish company ATASEVEN Group.
ATASEVEN Group CEO Mr. Bertan Korkmaz said that his company has significant experience in the field of renewable energy. Its wind project portfolio consists of wind farms with a total capacity of 200 MW, another 200 MW under construction and a pipeline of 500 MW. He noted that in accordance with the company’s policy, preference is given to employment for local residents. Representatives of Greenworx Holding and ATASEVEN Group expressed gratitude for the support and attention provided by local authorities to such projects and assured that mutual respect and social responsibility is a priority of the company.
Mr. Hanson noted that 2020 was quite difficult for businesses around the world, as well as very challenging for investors in the “green energy” market in Ukraine. However, the construction of a wind farm in the Kherson region remains in the company’s interests and therefore, he expressed hope that together with Turkish partners they will be able to resume project activities next year.
“We are always happy to welcome investors in our region and are ready to provide support and assistance,” said Sergei Kozyr. He stressed the importance of compliance with Ukrainian legislation during the construction process, especially regarding the preservation of existing road infrastructure. He also wished to involve local residents and contractors in the project.
To be noted: In 2018, a Memorandum of Cooperation was signed on the implementation of the project for the construction of the Dnipro-Bug Wind Power Plant between Kherson regional state administration and Dnipro-Bug WPP LLC. The estimated cost of the project is 180 million euros. The first pile of the project was laid in March, 2019.
