4 MW solar farm in western Latvia commissioned by Ukrainian renewables developer

Ukrainian renewables developer KNESS has announced the completion of a solar power plant in Latvia, marking the company’s first project in the country (31 July).

With a peak capacity of almost four megawatts (MW), the solar farm in the western town of Auces is now officially commissioned.

The plant was completed on a turnkey basis in five months, which also includes the plant’s commissioning which lasted about two months.

Ukrainian mounting structures for bifacial photovoltaic modules were used during the construction, KNESS noted. The Ukrainian renewables developer held testing and trials in late May, connecting the plant’s first kilowatt hours (kWh) of clean energy to the grid.

The wind farm is expected to cut carbon emissions by around four tons annually, KNESS said.

The client and developer of this project is Volterra Energy Group, a Ukrainian renewable energy development and investment management company.
