“We are very pleased to note that the implementation for the start of the Skolivska wind farm project became possible thanks to very rapid and consolidated decisions of the Nordex team and we hope for a further long-term cooperation with the Nordex Group. The use of renewable energy sources will strengthen Ukraine's energy independence, which is very actual nowadays and such renewable projects are timely and very important for Ukraine”, says Zinovii Kozytskyi, Head of Eco-Optima Supervisory Board.
