The company seeks to develop gas-to-power, renewable energy, and green hydrogen. 

Saudi-developer ACWA Power expands in Uzbekistan through three major agreements, meant to develop gas-to-power, renewable energy and green hydrogen projects, amongst others.

The company will be partnering with the government of Uzbekistan to develop 1.5 gigawatts (GW) wind farm. It is valued at around $2.4b and is expected to be fully commissioned by the first quarter of 2026. 

“This partnership will be a major contribution to Uzbekistan's achievements in developing and modernising the energy sector, and specifically our dedication to green energy,” Azim Akhmedkhojaev, First Deputy Minister of Energy of the Republic of Uzbekistan, said.

“The joint projects will also give us access to the most modern technologies.”
