Chernobyl Rises from the Ashes with Solar Farm

The large-scale solar farm right next to the disaster site in Chernobyl is almost completed. Apparently, it's just the start of a renaissance for the area, if we are to believe Ukrainian authorities. How come the workers installing the solar panels are not wearing any protective gear, I wonder.

That's a wonderful use of what would be otherwise wasted space. Protective gear, I would think, might be the minimum requirement? Sheesh.

Looks like the company who is spearheading this project is Chernobyl Solar. Have they done anything else or is this their first project?

Looks like the company was specially set up for this project.

Ah, so it's not just me wondering why they don't have protective gear. Could be working just a couple hours every day, though...

Does this project has any sense at all? Not only that workers will need an adequate protection from radiation but they will need sun too. As long as I know, Ukraine is not really known  by the abundant sunlight.

Whatever you think they need for this project, what Ukraine really needs is this project, and it needs it badly. It could only be a huge help for their economy.

It makes no logistical sense. They could build it anywhere else in Ukraine and it would be more economical.
