Chinese turbine manufacturer Goldwind has signed two contracts for the supply of wind farms with 600 MW in the Ukraine.

The company will supply the 337.5MW Zophia wind farm and the 288MW Ochakov wind power project in Ukraine. The two deals marked Goldwind’s major breakthrough in Ukraine, making it a frontrunner in the local market.

Both projects are located in the southern Ukraine with a total installed capacity of 625.5 MW. The two wind farms are comprised of 75 units of GW 155-4.5MW and 60 units of GW 155-4.8MW smart wind turbines. The WTGs are friendly to grid and compliant with the local grid connection requirements, which can guarantee maximum return on investment for the clients. The projects are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2022. Once built and operational, they will have an annual production of about 2.2 TWh, enough to power over 1,100,000 Ukrainian households and will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 1.7 million tons per year.
