Ukraine Chernobyl exclusion zone solar power plant started the global bidding

Polaris solar PV net news: Ukraine State quarantine Authority announced on 15th of the Chernobyl nuclear accident, now started to “Chernobyl solar power plant” building a global tender of the land needed for the project.

Ukraine National announcement in the official website of the area of the Chernobyl nuclear accident Authority said this is the first tender of construction land, a total of 1172 hectares of land will be used for the solar power plant phase I project. Saying that the Ukrainian Government welcomes domestic and foreign investors actively bidding, priority and had experience in PV power plant construction and operation of the company. The bid closing date is January 1, 2017.

Chernobyl solar power project is the Ukrainian Government to develop large-scale energy projects, aimed at the rational use of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident in the area of unused land and transmission infrastructure, covers a total area of 2500 hectares. Region in which the project is located in the explosion of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant reactor 4th 10 km south of, have already reached the normal level of radiation block. According to preliminary estimates, the project power will reach 1200 MW (1.2 million-kilowatt) upon completion, would generate an annual revenue of € 120 million to 130 million. According to the current solar power technology, 1-MW solar panels of the size of about two hectares of land for construction purposes.

In October this year, Wu xiemeilake, Minister of ecology and natural resources to the outside world, black square with two Chinese companies–China engineering limited and Concord group discussions on the project. The two Chinese companies have publicly expressed interest in jointly involved in this project, and plans to invest US $1 billion.

On April 26, 1986, in Ukraine the northern part near the Belarus border unit of 4th at the Soviet Chernobyl reactor suddenly exploded, killing 30 people killed and over 8 tons of radioactive leaks. The accident contaminated more than 60,000 square kilometers of land around the plant, more than 3.2 million people to varying degrees against nuclear radiation, making it by far the most serious accident in human history of the peaceful use of nuclear energy.

At present, the Chernobyl radiation values of large tracts of land in the area has returned to normal. In July, the Ukrainian Parliament passed a law to amend the regulations of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in the area of economic and social activity, for the development of the area of separation removed obstacles. On November 29, the unit covered in the 4th reactor of the new bunkers have been officially completed, creating conditions for further control and eliminate the effects of nuclear contamination.
