A 72 MW wind farm will be built in the Rivne region to produce environmentally friendly hydrogen.
The project is implemented by a group of companies MCL, which is engaged in the development of electricity generation facilities from renewable energy sources, reports glavcom.ua.
"In the north of Rivne region, we plan to install twelve modern wind turbines of 6 MW each," said Mykola Herasymenko, head of the MCL group of companies, during the conference "Transition from Green Tariff to Market Conditions" organized by the Ukrainian Wind Energy Association.
The height of wind power plants will be from 148 to 166 meters. The average expected wind speed is 7.4 m / s. According to the forecast, the wind farm will generate 270 GWh of electricity per year.
"Currently, we are developing a section for the production of green hydrogen and are preparing a feasibility study for our new project," said Mykola Gerasimenko. "We are also at the stage of attracting a strategic partner to finance this project."
MCL plans to sell "green" hydrogen to PJSC Rivneazot for further ammonia production. "Production of ammonia from hydrogen is economically feasible, and the demand for ammonia, a raw material for the synthesis of organic fertilizers, is growing," explains Mykola Herasimenko.
