Under a construction project set in motion by Lukoil at its Volgograd Refinery, a 10-megawatt solar power station will be erected on plots of land not involved in the production cycle, the company reported on June 27, 2017.
Construction and assembly, to be completed in September 2017, will be followed by startup and adjustment.
The commissioning is slated for the 1st quarter of 2018.
When the solar station in Volgograd goes on stream, it will cut the СО2 emissions by 10,000 tonnes and ensure the generation of additional 12 million kilowatt-hours annually.
Built on land plots not involved in the production cycle at the refineries, the station supplies electricity into local grids.
In addition, the company has an 84-megawatt windpark, Land Power, in Romania, and also several windmills at production fields in Russia.
