Ukrhydroenergo signed a Memorandum of Collaboration with GE Vernova’s Hydro Power business stating the companies’ desire to collaborate in the restoration of Ukrainian hydropower facilities, especially the Kakhovka Hydro Power Plant.
During the Memorandum signing ceremony, Mr. Ihor Syrota, the Director General of Ukrhydroenergo, thanked his colleagues for their support in this difficult time and expressed hope for establishing a close and fruitful cooperation.
“Your company and the equipment you produce are known in the world. We visited your production facilities several times and were impressed by the level of technology and the expertise of your team. Unfortunately, the missile strikes by the enemy have damaged a lot of our electrical equipment. We will be glad to see you as our partners with regard to the restoration of the Kakhovka Hydro Power Plant and other facilities that were damaged by russian missiles. I invite you to a dynamic cooperation as by the end of the year we are supposed to have a clear plan for the implementation of works”, said Ihor Syrota.
In turn, GE Vernova’s Hydro Power CEO Frederic Ribieras, expressed the firm readiness of GE Vernova to take an active part in the reconstruction of the Ukrainian hydropower industry.
“We are proud of this collaboration we are initiating with Ukrhydroenergo. These facilities are critical to powering Ukrainian houses, schools, hospitals and businesses with clean and reliable electricity.”
Be reminded that in August, Ukrhydroenergo signed the Memorandum of Cooperation with the Turkish holding Doğuş Group, providing for cooperation in construction of hydro power plants in Ukraine.
