Client: ACWA Power Global Services Ltd
Country: Uzbekistan
Start Date: 05 / 2020
End Date: 09 / 2020

ACWA is developing a 1,500 MW CCGT project through bilateral agreement with the GoU and signed a 25-year PPA in March 2020 on a BOOT basis. GoU is also developing another similar CCGT project in the adjacent area with the support of IFC. The proposed site area for the projects are located near the existing Syrdarya TPP, which with the capacity of 3,050 MW is the largest power plant in Uzbekistan. Recently 4 units or a total of 950 MW of the Syrdarya TPP have been rehabilitated and they are expected to be used for regulated capacities even though other old units are to be decommissioned in line with the implementation of new CCGT power plants. All of these make the Project technically one of the most complex in Uzbekistan power system. Juru worked with the lead partner to undertake ESIA and LRP based on lenders’ requirements (MIGA, EBRD, DEG).
