UZA News

On November 27, Shavkat Mirziyoyev, the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, was present at the inauguration of two major energy projects. The first was a 1,500 megawatt combined-cycle power plant connected to the power grid in Syrdarya region. The second was the beginning of construction of a pilot green hydrogen production facility in Tashkent region, implemented with the support of Saudi Arabia’s ACWA Power.

The thermal power plant in Syrdarya, with an estimated value of $1.1 billion, will provide electricity to more than 3 million households and multiple industrial establishments. Additionally, a pioneering green hydrogen production enterprise will be established in the region, with an initial capacity of 3 thousand tons of hydrogen, which will be further processed into mineral fertilizers. A wind station with a capacity of 52 megawatts will also be constructed.

ACWA Power has been actively involved in the successful implementation of large-scale energy projects worth $7.5 billion in Uzbekistan. The implementation of these projects is set to generate 25 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity by 2030, resulting in the conservation of 4.5 billion cubic meters of gas and a decrease of up to 3 million tons of harmful emissions to the atmosphere.
