ACWA Power to build largest in Central Asia wind farm in Uzbekistan



ACWA Power to build largest in Central Asia wind farm in Uzbekistan


Saudi Arabian ACWA Power has announced its readiness to build a new wind farm in Uzbekistan. The facility is set to become the largest in the region, and one of the largest in the world. A corresponding agreement was signed on May 3 this year with the ministries of energy, as well as investment and foreign trade of Uzbekistan.
The project includes the development, construction, and operation of a 1,500 MW wind power project in Karakalpakstan.
"This project is another significant achievement for your country and reinforces ACWA Power's commitment to work with fast-growing markets such as Uzbekistan to achieve its ambitious renewable energy and sustainable development goals," said ACWA Power Chairman Mohammad Abunayyan, commenting on the event.

"As an energy producer, we in Uzbekistan are learning a lot from our Middle Eastern and especially Saudi partners in the transition to a low-carbon economy. The ACWA Power project will make a big contribution to this process. Our plan is to produce 25% of electricity from renewable energy sources by 2030, " said Deputy Minister of Energy of Uzbekistan Sherzod Khodjaev.
The project is expected to meet the electricity needs of approximately 4mn households and offset approximately 2.5mn tons of carbon dioxide per year. The project is also in line the with government's goals of significantly increasing electricity generation using renewable energy to meet the growing demand.

ACWA Power is also running two more wind projects in Bukhara and Navoi, with a combined power generation capacity of 1,000 MW. In the Syrdarya region, it is implementing a project to build a high-efficiency gas power plant with a capacity of 1,500 MW.

Uzbekistan to study Hungary’s experience in construction of nuclear power plant


Uzbekistan’s Energy Ministry and the Uzatom Agency have reached an agreement with the Hungarian delegation on sending Uzbek specialists to the construction sites of the PAKS-2 nuclear power plant NPP.
The parties came to a mutual opinion that detailed monitoring of the work at the NPP in Hungary would be very useful for Uzbek specialists.
Hungarian delegates said that nuclear power was satisfying most of the demand for electricity in the country.
"Hungary has initiated a project for the construction of the PAKS-2 NPP, the design is carried out by Russia, power units are based on VVER-1200 reactors. The launch of the first unit is scheduled for 2030, which will ensure the continuity of electricity generation," they added.
The NPP in the Jizzakh region is also to be built using Russian technologies.

Uzbekistan GTL plant launched



The Uzbekistan GTL plant for the production of synthetic liquid fuels has been launched in Kashkadarya region. The plant will be fully operational on March 1, 2022.


The head of state Shavkat Mirziyoyev spoke about the unique technological advantages of the plant and its features that distinguish it from other industrial projects in the country.

In particular, such a large complex has so far been built in only 4 countries in the world – Qatar, Nigeria, South Africa and Malaysia. More than 13,000 engineers and construction workers were involved in the construction of the complex at the same time. The plant has installed more than 10,000 pieces of equipment manufactured by about 130 leading companies in 24 countries, including Japan, Korea, Singapore, the United States, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, Russia and China. 140 international licenses and patents have been obtained for the use of technological solutions, equipment and processes in production.

The President thanked all the engineers and builders involved in the construction of the plant, as well as foreign partners who assisted in the implementation of the project.

“The GTL plant and the Shurtan gas-chemical complex expansion projects are one of our first major steps towards creating a new industrial era in New Uzbekistan.

No matter how difficult it is, we have learned to work and live with the goal of making our country one of the developed countries and creating a decent standard of living for our people.

In these happy moments, when the New Year is knocking on our door, I pay tribute to our hardworking, courageous and noble people, the enthusiastic and dedicated workers of industry, who are the creators and builders of all our achievements,” the President said.

Demand for energy in Uzbekistan to increase two-fold by 2030



As a result of the acceleration of reforms in Uzbekistan, the development of industry, population growth, the energy demand is expected to increase sharply, almost doubling by 2030. This was noted on a special meeting of the Senate Meeting on Aral Sea Development that discussed the work implemented in Karakalpkakstan on the use of solar and wind energy in the economy, social facilities, and housing as well as the priorities of the development strategy for 2022-2026.

With this in mind, a project agreement on the construction of a 1,700 MW wind farm in Karakalpakstan is planned to be signed in 2022. The meeting also emphasized the importance of foreign investment and local entrepreneurs and training through the introduction of the tax, customs, and other benefits provided for in the Law 'On the use of renewable energy sources.

The draft development strategy for 2022-2026, which is currently under discussion, focused on ensuring socio-economic development by expanding the use of renewable energy sources.

The draft document aims to increase the energy efficiency of the economy by 20% and reduce emissions by 10%.

It envisages an increase in electricity generation by an additional 40 billion kWh by 2026 to a total of 110 billion kWh, saving about 3 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year by emitting 25% of renewable energy sources by 2026. It is also planned to reduce the volume of harmful gases by 8 million tons.

In this regard, it is planned to develop a program to expand and support the use of renewable energy sources, including the construction of 4 GWh through the construction of 8 wind farms in the Republic of Karakalpakstan and the regions, the construction of additional capacity to 4 GWT through the commissioning of 10 solar photovoltaic plants.

Following the draft document, the procedure for the introduction of a component of the use of renewable energy sources in the production of heat and electricity for their own needs will be introduced within the framework of projects funded by international financial institutions.
