Acwa Power breaks ground on $300m Azerbaijan wind project – The National

Saudi Arabia’s Acwa Power and Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Energy broke ground on a 1.125 billion Saudi riyal ($300 million) 240-megawatt wind power plant that will contribute to the Central Asian country’s target of generating 30 per cent of its energy through renewables by 2030.

The greenfield independent power project, located 45 kilometres north-west of the capital Baku, is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2023.

It will contribute around 3.7 per cent of energy to the country’s total national grid capacity and power 300,000 households, while offsetting 400,000 tonnes of emissions, Acwa Power said on Friday.
