Tryba Energy is bolstering its team in order to pursue the successful implementation of an ambitious strategy in large scale solar PV project development internationally.
Yuliya Lev joins the group to focus on existing and future business in Ukraine. Yuliya has extensive experience in the field of large international projects. Her adaptability and her organizational and communication skills are key qualities which, allied to Yuliya’s Franco-Ukrainian cultural background, are a perfect fit with Tryba’s values.
On December 20th, Tryba Energy inaugurated a solar PV plant dedicated to Norba Production SA’s new joinery production unit in the Swiss Canton of Vaud. The PV plant will provide 36% of the joinery’s requirements in electricity.
Tryba Energy has signed a partnership agreement with the Communauté de Communes Sud Alsace Largue for the development of a ground based solar PV project to be built at Retzwiller in the Sundgau Region.
This will be the first renewable energy production site in the region. The PV Plant’s capacity will be 5MWc with estimated annual production of 5 850 MWh, equivalent to the electricity consumption of 2 500 homes. In addition, the plant will result in an annual reduction of CO2 emissions of 650 tonnes.
Developing and bringing on line a new large scale solar PV plant is not just about feasibility studies, technology and financing.
Above all, each project is a new Human Adventure. Which is exactly what we’re experiencing in Uganda as construction of our 10MWc plant advances.
A few observations on-site last week:
Tryba Energy started construction today of the solar PV facility in the car park of the Ecomusée d’Alsace, the largest living open air museum in France. The launch took place in the presence of Mrs Brigitte Klinkert, President of the Alsace Department Supervisory Board and also a very special guest Mr Thomas Edison.
The attendees were reminded that Mr Edison said in 1931: I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.
At Tryba Energy we believe it is high time to transform Edison’s prophetic words into reality and we are particularly proud to contribute to this effort at the Ecomusée, itself a living reminder of our history here in Alsace.
In Uganda Tryba Energy is currently building the first large scale African PV project to use solar tracking technology, which allows the solar panels to remain directly oriented towards the sun during the course of the day thanks to a motorised support structure , thereby increasing the level of electricity produced.
The site of the project, near Jinja in Uganda, is particularly well suited to the use of a tracking system.
The summer is proving particularly bright for Tryba Energy!
After launching the construction in France of a further 10 MWc and having taken a major step forward on our project in Niger, we signed a new project in Ukraine on 25th July.
