Grid-connected solar project to power pumps in water scarce Kalmykia region in Russia

Russia’s largest PV cell and module manufacturer Hevel Group constructed the first on-grid 53 kW solar power plant in southern Russia’s region Kalmykia. The PV project is aimed to supply electricity to a water pump station bringing fresh water for several villages and agricultural farms.

PV system is expected to reduce power consumption of water pumps by more than 50 percent in summer.

Besides small-scale projects Hevel Group also committed to build in Kalmykia large-scale PV plants totaling 120 MW by 2020.
