“The mobile power plant was manufactured in the United States by GE’s Gas Power business and has a total output capacity of approximately 28MW, which is enough to provide the equivalent electricity to at least 100,000 homes. This will help Ukraine increase the supply of electricity to homes, hospitals, schools, critical infrastructure providers, and other institutions,” noted the USAID.
The mobile power plant can work in different cities and regions, strengthening Ukraine’s energy security in the face of Russia’s attacks on critical infrastructure.
The Prime Minister of Ukraine thanked the partners for the gas turbine power plant during a meeting with the First Deputy administrator of USAID, Isobel Coleman. At the same time, he expressed hope for obtaining additional such power plants to ensure the stability of the critical infrastructure of Ukraine.
