The Norwegian solar project developer and power plant operator Scatec Solar ASA and partner Rengy Development have grid connected and reached commercial operation for the 47 MW Rengy project in the south of Ukraine. The project is realised under the country's fixed Feed-in-Tariff scheme until 2030 and is expected to produce about 56 GWh per year. Public land has been leased for an extended time-period and the plants are expected to deliver power also beyond the Feed-in-tariff period.
Furthermore, the company announced the grid connection of another 65 MW of the Benban project in Egypt. This is Scatec Solar’s fifth solar plant in country and the company now has 335 MW in operation in Egypt. The last plant is expected to reach commercial operation with a couple of months. In April 2017, Scatec Solar with its partners KLP Norfund and Africa 50 signed a 25-year Power Purchase Agreements with the Government of Egypt for delivery of electricity from six solar plants, equal in size, totaling 390 MW. The company estimates annual power production of 870 GWh.
Scatec Solar now has 1,128 MW in operation and another 776 MW under construction on four continents.
