Foreign investors are planning to launch project for growing energy crop miscanthus and manufacturing solar panels in Rivne region.
There are research plots with elephant grass (miscanthus) - little known in Ukraine but popular in Europe in village Shubkiv of Rivne region.
Currently InvestInRivne Agency is negotiating with Polish investors concerning growing high yielding energy crop which is undemanding to the soil in Rivne region.
Rivne region is actively looking for the investor who can start growing miscanthus in industrial volumes in 2016. The region became interested in energy crop in 2011. Young plants from the four hectares of experimental plots in 2012 were transferred to the northern regions of Rivne but further planting of large areas has not been arranged yet.
In addition, InvestInRivne Agency is working with German investors who intend to make solar panels in Rivne and arrange alternative electricity sale by green tariff. Currently, even the land plot has been chosen for future business.
We are also going to attract investment for the construction of mini-hydropower plant on the river Sluch.
InvestInRivne Agency assisted BAU-INVEST company in building industrial park in the territory of Velykoomelyanska rural council for the pellets manufacture.
