DTEK Commissions Tyligulska Wind Power Plant In Ukraine

The DTEK Group (DTEK) has completed construction of the first phase of the Tyligulska wind power plant in Ukraine, 19 wind turbines with a capacity of 114 MW. Full design capacity for the plant is 500 MW. DTEK is now seeking options for the further implementation of the project, including negotiations with international donors and partners.

“Despite all the challenges of this year of war, DTEK has constructed an additional 114 MW of green power generation for Ukraine. It has been a difficult task, but done thanks to the high levels of professionalism and bravery,” said Maxim Timchenko, CEO of DTEK. “Ukraine creates and Russia destroys. This is the fundamental difference in our world views. DTEK is building new energy facilities because we believe in the victory of Ukraine. And we are sending a signal to international partners that it is possible to invest in Ukraine today without waiting for the end of the war.”

Located in the Mykolaiv region of southern Ukraine, the Tyligulska wind power plant is an important step toward achieving the nation’s 30 to 2030 Initiative, which aims to have 30 GW of installed renewable energy capacity in Ukraine by 2030.

Ukraine’s current installed renewable energy capacity, including the temporarily occupied facilities in the south of the country, is about 10 GW. An increase in green power generation to 30 GW would mean renewables make up 50% of Ukraine’s power generation.

DTEK is the largest employer in Ukraine, with more than 60,000 employees. It produces electricity at solar, wind, and thermal power plants; trades energy resources on Ukrainian and foreign markets; distributes electricity; manages power grid infrastructures; and more.
