The agreement was signed by Masdar CEO Mohammed Jameel Al Ramahi and Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers of Turkmenistan Charymurat Purchekov in Abu Dhabi. Turkmenenergo is the state authority responsible for the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity in Turkmenistan.

      Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers of Turkmenistan, Charymurat Purchekov, said: "We hope that this document will mark the beginning of a new stage in the development of the electric power industry of Turkmenistan through the construction of solar and wind power plants, in which this company has accumulated a large and rich experience. We thank Masdar for entering such an important agreement with us and look forward to long-term cooperation."

      Masdar CEO said: "As a global leader in renewable energy with many projects across Central Asia, Masdar has the right expertise and experience needed to support Turkmenistan's development of its renewable energy sector."
