January 23 (Renewables Now) - Russia’s PV cell and module manufacturer Hevel Group on Wednesday said its 10-MW Chemal solar park in the Altai Republic, southern Siberia, is now operational, marking the completion of the company’s solar construction programme in the region.

The park uses heterojunction (HJT) modules.

The Altai Republic now has 120 MW in installed photovoltaic (PV) capacity, which generates 154 million kWh a year, meeting over 30% of the region’s power needs, the company said. 

Last month, the company brought online its 40-MW Ust-Koksa solar plant, which is the biggest PV facility in Siberia and one of the biggest HJT plants in the world, according to the Hevel Group. 

Overall, the company has installed in Russia 200 MW of capacity, powered by HJT modules.
