TIU Canada combating in court to reconnect solar farm in Ukraine
- Renewable resource company TIU Canada has actually brought to justice Nikopol Ferroalloy Plant (NFZ) for separating its 10.5-MW solar farm in Nikopol, southeastern Ukraine, in March 2020.
The Canadian company estimates that the interference from the grid, which it claims was prohibited, has so far caused more than EUR 1.5 million (USD 1.8 m) of damages. It is looking for instant reconnection and also plans to hold NFZ as well as its shareholders completely liable.
A hearing on Thursday in the Kyiv Commercial Court was the first trial day adhering to the verdict of preliminary hearings in December.
TIU put on the internet the 10.5-MW solar park in January 2018. In December 2019, the business was informed by NFZ that the latter meant to detach the center for "repair services". The Canadian company sought methods to avoid this yet its power plant still got separated on March 2, 2020. The firm clarifies that under Ukranian law, only the power generator can authorise a disconnection.
