The largest wind power plant in Eastern Europe will be launched in Ukraine; the project should be ready by the end of 2025, Report informs.

Ukraine’s DTEK Group and Vestas have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to complete the construction of the largest wind farm in Eastern Europe, a project supported by the European Commission and the governments of Ukraine and Denmark.

The memorandum was signed at the UN COP28 climate conference in the presence of European Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson and Minister of Energy of Ukraine German Galushchenko (via video link).

The installed capacity of the Tyligulska Wind Power Plant will be 500 megawatts, with a total investment in excess of 650 million euros.

The second stage of the windfarm will consist of 64 wind turbines (of 6 MW each) with a total capacity of 384 MW. The first stage with a capacity of 114 MW was commissioned in the spring of 2023.

Combined, the first and second phases of DTEK Tyligulska windfarm will have a capacity of around 500 MW (83 wind turbines). The plant will be capable of generating about 1.7 TWh of electricity annually – enough for the needs of 900,000 households. It is expected the project will save 1.7 million tons of CO2 that would otherwise be emitted.
