Funtovskaya SPP was put into operation in Privolzhsky district of Astrakhan region in December 2018. The power plant began providing the power to the electrical network from January 1, 2019.
Funtovskaya SPP is the second stage of Niva SPP with the capacity of 15 MW which was built by our company in March 2018. After the commissioning of the second stage, the aggregate capacity of the solar power plant has achieved 75 MW. So one of the largest SPP built in Russia has appeared.
The aggregate forecast annual electric energy generation of the power plant amounts to 110 GW*h that allows avoiding 58 thousand tons of carbon dioxide emissions and sparing 33 mln cubic meters of the natural gas. The power produced by the Funtovskaya SPP is enough to provide more than 30 thousand households in the region.
More than 200 thousand solar modules produced in our plant in Novocheboksarsk under the heterostructure technology with the record capacity of more than 22% and the wide temperature range (from 60 to +85 Celsius degrees) are installed in the solar power plant.
Astrakhan region is one of the priority regions for the Hevel Company group in southern Russia. Four solar power plants whose aggregate capacity amounts to 165 MW are working under operation of the company now. Such a generation volume makes Astrakhan region the largest region in the area of solar power engineering objects in the Hevel portfolio.
