ACWA Power signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with the National Electric Grid of Uzbekistan for Central Asia’s largest wind farm — the Aral 5GW Wind Independent Power Producer (IPP) project in the Karakalpakstan region.


The agreement was signed on the sidelines of the Tashkent International Investment Forum held under the patronage of Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev.


It was signed in the presence of Uzbek Prime Minister Abdulla Aripov and Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman Al Saud during a ceremony inaugurating two of ACWA Power’s ongoing projects in the country: the 1.5GW Sirdarya CCGT plant and the first 100MW phase of the Riverside solar plant in the Tashkent region.


Mirziyoyev also attended the ceremony.


As ACWA Power’s 15th project in Uzbekistan, Aral Wind IPP solidifies the company’s strong commitment to providing the renewable energy needed to meet the Central Asian country’s ambitious aims to have 40% of its energy mix provided by renewables by 2030.


Uzbekistan is ACWA Power’s largest market after its home country of Saudi Arabia, and this latest project brings its total investment in the country to $13.9 billion.


Founder and Chairman of the Board of ACWA Power Mohammad Abunayyan said: “This historic project will provide clean power to approximately 4.5 million houses in Uzbekistan, a country which is propelling its energy transition thanks to its ambitious and decisive leadership.”
