New solar power plant built in Armenian Shenik

YEREVAN, December 13. /ARKA/. Armenia’s prime minister Karen Karapetyan visited today the Shenik rural community in Armavir province to attend the official opening of the Green Energy solar power plant with the installed capacity of 1 MW, the government press office said. It said the solar power plant was built by several local companies in cooperation with Baghramyanshin construction firm, ACBA Leasing and Shtigen company.

It said also that the construction took 3.5 months, and some $800,000 of investments. During the construction 70 jobs were created for residents of neighboring communities and villages.

The solar power plant consists of 3,124 polycrystalline solar panels and 35 solar inverters, which were purchased from leading international companies specializing in their production.  The solar power plant is expected to generate 1600 MWh of electricity per year.

Karapetyan was quoted by the government press office as saying that solar energy has a great potential for development in Armenia, and the increase in the number of solar power plants demonstrates the progress of this sector.

Karapetyan also visited intensive gardens, created by Spayka company in the community. He was told that a drip irrigation system was built for about 30 hectares of cherry and 22 hectares of apricot gardens which is quite effective and reduces the cost of irrigation approximately 8-10 times. Gardens will be completely protected by hailstorms with antihail grids.

According to the prime minister, the creation of intensive gardens in Armenia is one of the important directions of modernization and development of agriculture, and the government consistently stimulates this process through targeted programs of state assistance. -0-
