Sumitomo Corporation has agreed to carry out a feasibility study on modernizing heat supply systems for Ukraine and Japanese manufacturer Komaihaltec has agreed to install 1 MW of wind turbines in the country.

Both agreements were signed in Tokyo this week with Ukrainian state oil and gas company Naftogaz at the Japan-Ukraine Economic Reconstruction Promotion Conference.

With support from the Japanese government, Sumitomo, the industrial giant, will help Ukrainian oil and gas company Naftogaz study the economic and technical feasibility of upgrading combined heat and power plants (CHPPs).

"CHPPs in Ukraine, and especially those transferred to Naftogaz, were built a long time ago and have an extremely outdated material base," said Oleksiy Chernyshov, head of the Naftogaz Group. "We are very interested in their modernization using advanced Japanese technologies."

And Komhailtec, which manufactures equipment used in renewable energy production, has agreed to install 1MW worth of capacity of wind energy at a Naftogaz site in Ukraine.
