    January 17, 2022 - Interfax Central Asia General News


      ASHGABAT. Jan 17 (Interfax) - Turkish company Calik Enerji Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. has won a tender to build the first hybrid solar and wind farm with a capacity of 10 megawatts in Turkmenistan, Turkmen Deputy Prime Minister Carymyrat Purcekow said at a government meeting with President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow on Friday, reporting on the development of renewable energy in the country.

      A multipurpose wind and solar farm with a 10 MW capacity is to be built in the Serdar district of the Balkan region in line with the roadmap confirmed in April 2019 on the implementation of the Altyn Asyr Lake Development Concept for 2019-2025, Purcekow said.

      The proposal of Calik Enerji Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. was selected as a result of the tender process, he said.

      The wind and solar farm will produce clean energy, ensuring continuous and reliable power supply to the inhabited areas to spring up around Altyn Asyr Lake. The implementation of this, the first project of its kind in the country, will boost the sector's capacity, will enable the training of specialist workers, and will create new jobs, Purcekow said.

      Berdimuhamedow ordered that this work be continued, taking into account the great significance it has for increasing the potential and upgrading the infrastructure of the national electric power industry.

      The construction of cost-effective alternative energy facilities that do not harm the environment will directly promote the development and provision of ecological wellbeing in the Altyn Asyr Lake area, Berdimuhamedow said.
