The Asian Development Bank will allocate $174 million for the construction of two wind plants in the Bukhara region

Wind power plants will generate more than 3 thousand GWh of energy

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and ACWA Power entered into a $174 million loan agreement for the development of two wind farms in the Bukhara region.

The Bank will provide loans in the amount of $40.5 million for the Bashskaya power plant and $46.5 million for the Dzhankeldinskaya power plant. 

In addition, ADB will manage loans for these plants from Asia's Leading Private Infrastructure Fund for the same amount. The money to finance the loans will come from ADB's regular capital resources.

The two power plants will have a combined 158 wind turbines that will generate 3,235 GWh of power and displace up to 2 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year. 

The loans will also be used to build 282.5 km of a 500 kilovolt transmission line to connect to the power grid.
