Lukoil Sets Up Second Russian Solar Project
Lukoil has commissioned its second solar park in Russia’s southern Volgograd region.
The 20MW project was built at the territory of company’s oil refinery unused for its core operations.
First solar power plant with a capacity of 10MW came online in 2018.
Both plants will be operated by a separate division of Lukoil, established to deploy the company’s renewable businesses.
The company partnered with Russian largest solar cell and module manufacturer Hevel Group that performed EPC works and supplied solar modules.
The solar farm will generate 24.5m kWh of electricity annually which can reduce CO2 emissions by 12 thousand tonnes each year.
