What the exclusion zone can offer to potential investors
Energy and waste management
In 2018, the first solar power plant opened in the zone - Solar Chornobyl. Currently, an area of 25 sq.km. with significant potential for expansion has been allocated for wind and solar power plants.
The options are being considered for building waste processing plants, and creating facilities for the disposal of hazardous waste.
From 2015 to 2019, the number of visitors increased almost 16 times and reached 125,000 visitors per year in the pre-pandemic period.
Currently, the basic tourist infrastructure of Chornobyl has only 1 hotel and several stores. Given that all tourist locations of the Zone can not be visited in one day, there is a demand for modern hotel and entertainment infrastructure.
Research and development
The closed area with unique conditions of long-term isolation and limited access, where flora and fauna have been subjected to persistent pollution.
A region with a set of man-made and natural parameters that has no analogues in the world.
The hub of the experience gained during 30 years of scientific and applied research.
Art and social projects
The rethinking of the Chornobyl tragedy in Ukraine in 2020 prompted the launch of an international opera project "Chornobyldorf."
The project is currently being transformed into a large-scale interdisciplinary performance involving artists, philosophers, culturologists and historians from around the world.
Over the last 3-4 years, Ukrainian market of video production and visual effects has reached the world level. its competitive advantage includes price and quality of resulting projects.
The Chornobyl Exclusion Zone is a location that allows to implement historical, futuristic and post-apocalyptic plots.
Currently, the cash rebate base for this project is under development.
