An international energy infrastructure developer has acquired a 73 MW onshore wind project under development in southern Ukraine

Construction work on this particular project is expected to begin in 2023, said CWP Global. The scheme is estimated to require an investment of € 76 million (approximately US $ 90.2 million), which will create 360 ​​jobs vacancies.

“Taking into account the renewable energy potential of Ukraine and its proximity to the growing European market, it was an obvious decision for CWP Global to invest in Ukraine. This landmark investment in Ukraine is an exciting stepping stone for CWP Global, and we look forward to working with communities, supply chain partners and the Ukrainian government to deliver the world's leading infrastructure projects”, said CWP Chairman Mark Crandall.

According to representatives of the Australian company, it has an ambitious development plan in Ukraine, aimed at supporting the country's transition from energy production from fossil fuels to a low-carbon future.

CWP Global also sees potential for green hydrogen production in Ukraine. Moreover, the company believes that the country could become a center for the production and export of hydrogen to Western European countries.

CWP was founded in 2007 out of a passion for renewable energy and the opportunity that has presented a timely entry into the emerging renewable energy market in Southeast Europe. Since then, the company has developed nearly 2 000 MW of renewable energy projects, including Europe's largest operating onshore wind farm. CWP Global headquartered is in Newcastle, Australia.
