Commercial Director at Solar Steelconstruction Company, Dmytro Chudinov, answered IB Centre’s questions.
Please tell us about the products and services Solar Steelconstruction offers.
Our company is one of the largest players in Ukraine’s solar energy market; it designs and manufactures mount systems for both commercial and private solar power plants. Hot dip galvanized steel, aluminum and cold-rolled mount systems are the basis of our product range. Our company employs highly qualified engineers and professional construction gangs with work experience in the energy market.
How have your Company’s performance indicators for the first half of 2019 (compared to the same period in 2018) changed?
You know, we continue constructing solar stations as we used to. Compared to 2018, our company works 24/7 in 2019. The production facilities allow us to manufacture our products on time, which is crucial for our customers.
Which category prevails among your customers? Why?
Our company works in the solar energy market through a dealer network. Our main clients are installation organizations and EPC companies. Whatever the request we get, we can offer ready-made solutions used by our dealers, and, moreover, we can also develop custom solutions depending on the request. For example, it could be a 2-kW rooftop solar station or a 50-MW variable-pitch station or a station on concrete blocks – we are open to all orders.
What were the main achievements of Solar Steelconstruction during the last 2-3 years?
In 2018, we opened an integrated production – unparalleled in Ukraine. We have three factories: in Dnipro, Kyiv and in the Kyiv region. For 7 years, we have implemented more than 3000 projects. We delivered more than 30,000 tonnes of metal structures in Ukraine and in the CIS countries in 2018 alone.

Now our company takes part in a project on construction of tracker solar power plant. We are constantly developing, and looking for new solutions and interesting projects.
This year, we are actively designing and installing commercial rooftop systems. In addition, our Company provides a full range of installation services: driving piles, geodetic marking of plant construction sites, installation of mount systems, installation of photomodules, driving inverter piles, laying cables and more. Working with us you will get high quality engineering and mount systems that will be in use for more than 10 years. Our company also provides post-warranty service to the solar stations we built.
Is the world’s switch to 100% clean energy possible?
It’s hard to say right now, but you can bet on it. Solar is the thing of the future, and that’s great.
What does Solar Steelconstruction Company think of using artificial intelligence in the renewable energy sector?
Technological progress forges ahead, and it is important to stimulate this progress. We are not talking about robots now, but artificial intelligence can be used for managing the solar station, monitoring its generation, as well as in the process of designing it. Therefore, I can say for certain that, if this is possible, Solar Steelconstructionwill be glad to use artificial intelligence under the control of our specialists.
What should everyone know about solar energy?
Solar power is the future. Solar energy is affordable, applicatory, environmentally friendly and, of course, nice-looking, so why not use it?
