Solar power for the Cherkasy Third City Emergency Hospital (Ukraine)

As part of the Solar Aid for Ukraine initiative, these solar panels will not only provide renewable and sustainable energy to an emergency hospital in the Ukrainian city of Cherkasy, they will also result in significant savings for the hospital.

Project details

The aim of this project is to install a solar power plant with a capacity of 150kW on the roof of the main building of the hospital. The following equipment will be needed:

1) Basic equipment and services

  • Photomodules
  • Inverters
  • Support structures (galvanized steel) on a flat roof
  • Cable and wire products (DC), connectors and more
  • Development of the construction project

2) Construction, installation and electrical works

  • Preparatory work, operation of machines and mechanisms
  • Installation of structures and modules
  • Cable installation on the side of DC, AC
  • Installation of inverters and protection equipment
  • Start-up and adjustment works

3) Other expenses

  • Transportation services
  • General and administrative expenses

The project implementation period is 2 months.

This video concerns an earlier Solar Aid for Ukraine project, in which 32.5 kW of solar panels were installed on the roof of a hospital in Zviahel. The project for the Cherkasy hospital is fundamentally similar, with a larger installed capacity (150 kW).

Positive impacts

The planned annual generation of the solar plant to be installed on the roof of Cherkasy Hospital is 156,172 kWh per year. As the hospital’s total annual electricity consumption is estimated to be 1,312,948 kWh, the plant will provide 12% of total electricity consumption.

The project is estimated to cost 140,000 EUR to install, with annual savings of 22,000 EUR. The payback period is therefore calculated to be 6,24 years.

Furthermore, the reduction of CO2 emissions is just under 80 tons per year. Over the entire operational life of the plant, the reduction of emissions is thus over 1,450 tons.
