09.04.2018

Moscow – Russian solar modules manufacturer and PV project developer Hevel Group and Russia’s leading precious metals mining group Polymetal signed a contract on building a 1 MW solar power plant at one of the mines located in Khabarovsk region (Russia’s Far East).

1 MW solar power project is designed to supply electricity to mining facility in order to enable reduction of diesel power generation which is the main source in off-grid areas.

“Our mine is located in remote area, which is why decrease in fuel consumption by the camp and mining infrastructure is of high importance, - said a representative of the mine. – Once the PV power plant is put into operation annual economy can achieve 250 tons of diesel fuel.”

”Khabarovsk region boasts high solar irradiance conditions and according to our forecast 1 MW solar power plant will generate 1.2 GWh annually, - said Igor Shakhray, CEO of Hevel Group – Many mines are located at remote off-grid areas, and solar electricity is economically viable for mining production”.
