Installing the largest wind turbine in Central Asia

A Saudi Arabian company has installed the largest wind turbine in Central Asia, in the Bukhara region of Uzbekistan.

The 6.5 megawatt (MW) wind turbine was made by Chinese wind turbine maker Envision for Saudi Arabia-based ACWA Power, and China Energy Engineering Corporation installed it. Envision says on its website that its 6X MW wind turbine is 160 meters (525 feet) tall and has a 17X rotor.

It’s the first turbine in ACWA Power’s 500 MW Bash wind farm near the city of Bukhara in Uzbekistan. It will feature 79 of the largest wind turbines in Central Asia and is expected to generate more than 1,650 GWh of electricity annually. It will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 750 tones per year.

          It's a remarkable stride forward, not only in harnessing the power of wind but also in setting a positive example for the region.

                Great work! This initiative could potentially have significant benefits for the region in terms of increasing access to renewable energy and reducing reliance on non-renewable sources of energy.
