UFA, 26 April 2019. /Bashinform News Agency/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina, Rozaliya Valeeva/.
By the end of the year, the Hevel Group of Companies will construct the largest hybrid solar power plant (SPP) in Russia with industrial energy storage units. Solar generation plant with a total capacity of 10 MW will be located in the Burzyan district of Bashkortostan, the company website reports.
In the Burzyan district, the power supply takes place via a single-circuit transmission line with a length of 100 km (Beloretsk — Starosubkhangulovo village). Burzyanskaya SPP with an integrated energy storage system with a capacity of 8 MW/h will work both in parallel with the network and in autonomous mode. Thus, the power station will provide electricity to the entire area, and in the event of an emergency shutdown or repair work on the power line, it will provide electricity to hospitals, schools, and kindergartens in the autonomous mode.
Earlier, the company estimated investments in the Burzyan project at 800 million rubles, the station was planned to be launched in 2020, the Kommersant-Bashkortostan newspaper reported. The project went up in price to 1 billion rubles taking into account the storage units.
The Hevel company built Buribaevskaya, Bugulchanskaya, Isyangulovskaya stations in Bashkiria with a capacity of 20, 15 and 9 MW, respectively. Investments in the projects were estimated at 5 billion rubles. The company plans to build four more SESs in the republic with an aggregate installed capacity of 100 MW (25 MW each) in the Khaibullino and Kuyurgazy districts with an investment of about 9 billion rubles.
