GE Vernova Continues Work Supporting Ukraine Through MoC to Restore Hydropower Facilities

  • Two-year MoC signed between GE Vernova's Hydro Power business and Ukrhydroenergo

GE Vernova today announced the signing of a Memorandum of Collaboration (MoC) between its Hydro Power business and Ukrhydroenergo, Ukraine’s largest operator of hydropower plants. As part of the two-year agreement, both companies will seek to identify opportunities to build and restore Ukraine’s hydropower facilities. In particular, the MoC identifies a new pumped storage plant of Kaniv (1 GW), the supply of 3 units of 324MW for the Dniester power plant, and the reconstruction of Kakhovka power plant (335 MW), which was damaged during the war. This MoC provides a framework for potential contractual agreements in the future.

“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,” explained Frederic Ribieras, CEO of GE Vernova’s Hydro Power business.

“We are pleased to see GE as our partner for the restoration of the Kakhovka Hydro Power Plant and other facilities that were damaged. We expect a dynamic level of cooperation, leading to a clear plan for the implementation of works by the end of the year,” added Mr. Ihor Syrota, the Director General of Ukrhydroenergo.
