BNT Advises PV Consult on Construction of Solar Energy Power Plant in Belarus BNT Advises PV Consult on Construction of Solar Energy Power Plant in Belarus

The Minsk office of BNT attorneys-at-law has advised PV Consult, one of the leading builders of solar energy generating stations in Europe, on the company’s participation in the construction of a solar energy production project in Bragin, Belarus.

According to BNT, the project involves the proposed construction of the biggest power plant in Belarus producing photovoltaic energy which is expected to be completed (in what bnt describes as “record-breaking time”) and put into operation this summer. According to bnt, “the solar plant construction project is aimed at enhancing the energy security of Belarus by decreasing dependence on hydrocarbon raw material supply.” In addition, the firm reports, “the positive impact of the project on the ecological situation in Belarus is hard to overestimate: carbon dioxide omission will be reduced by 12 thousand tons a year."

PV Consult is a contractor and will install 85 thousand photovoltaic panels, which will occupy an area equivalent to 56 hectares (or, bnt reports, 80 football pitches). To bond all the panels, PV Consult will lay approximately 800 km cable lines,  amounting to the distance between Minsk and Moscow. Plant capacity will amount to 22.3 MW/hour — a record figure for Belarusian solar stations. 

BNT has assisted PV Consult in negotiations with the project developer, concluding agreements with the SPV, obtaining construction permits, employing foreign experts/professionals, ensuring equipment supply, and other matters.
