These facilities are the Novouzensk SPP with a capacity of 15 MW and the second phase of the Orlov-Gaiskyaya SPP with a capacity of 10 MW, the company said. The construction of two new solar power plants is at the final stage. Solar modules have been installed, while start-up and adjustment operations will be conducted over the course of the autumn.
