Ukraine’s wind energy potential is one of the highest in Europe.
German technology-based Furlander Windtechnology in Kramatorsk assembles 3.2 МW wind turbines and is the only such manufacturer in the Commonwealth of Independent States that formed during the dissolution of the Soviet Union. A wind turbine this powerful can supply enough energy to a village of 2,000-3,000 people.
Furlander Windtechnology in Kramatorsk has the annual production capacity of 100 turbines. One of its recent clients was a wind farm in Kazakhstan.
To the south-west, Rinat Akhmetov’s DTEK Windpower-owned Botiyevska wind farm sports an installed capacity of 200 MW and is the largest wind farm in Ukraine. Located on the Sea of Azov shore in Zaporizhia oblast, it is one of the five largest on-shore wind farms in Central and Eastern Europe.
With its 65 Dutch-made 3.075 МW, 400 ton Vestas turbines, Botiyevska generated in 2016 600 million kW/h of energy — enough to supply a 100,000-strong community.
