In the summer of 2017, it became known about the intentions of the large Chinese company TBEA International to build the largest wind power plant in Eastern Europe. TBEA International is engaged in the manufacture of power transformers and other electrical equipment. The project will be implemented on the territory of Ukraine – in the Berezan district of Mykolaiv region. The capacity of the future wind installation may be up to 500 MW. For comparison – this is half of nuclear power plant unit.
On December 28, 2017, Sergey Tanasov, the chairman of the regional state administration, met with representatives of TBEA International and Institute Dniprovnipienergoprom, LLC. During the meeting, the terms of project realization were discussed. The project involves the installation of one hundred wind power plants, which will be located on the territory of Tashinsk, Krasnopilsk and Anatolievsky village councils. For the installation of WPP, it will be necessary to attract 500 specialists and 100 permanent workers for further maintenance.
Representatives of the district state administration have already stated that the wind farm will become the most powerful wind farm not only in Ukraine but also in Europe. In addition, attracting investment in such volume will not only create new jobs but will also positively affect the development of the region and the image of the country. It should be noted that TBEA International works in more than 60 countries of the world.
