Uzbekistan has commissioned its first utility-scale solar plant of 100 MW. The plant has been developed by UAE’s Masdar.
To build the project, Masdar signed an agreement with the Uzbekistan government and JSC National Electric Grid of Uzbekistan in 2019. The scope of work included all aspects of design, finance, build, own and operations of the solar plant. A local project company, Nur Navoi Solar FE LLC, was established by Masdar to deliver the solar photovoltaic (PV) plant, and to operate and maintain it over a 25-year period.
