Badamsha 1 e 2, energy from the wind in Kazakhstan

With our two Badamsha wind farms, we produce renewable and carbon-neutral electricity, which we then feed into Kazakhstan's local grid. The Badamsha 1 plant is located in the north-western region of Aktobe and is our first large-scale investment in wind power.  Badamsha 2 is the second wind project in the same region and doubles the installed capacity of the first facility.


For more than three decades, our presence in Kazakhstan has been marked by an enduring commitment to the country's progress.  Our wind farms have a positive impact on the local economy and create job opportunities for the community.  We contribute to training highly skilled workers through partnerships with local universities, while our environmental projects lay the foundation for sustainable development in Kazakhstan.

Renewable energy from the wind in Kazakistan

It is estimated that annual energy production can reach up to 198GWh, equivalent to the consumption of about 37,000 households and with total Co2 savings of 172,000 tonnes. The Badamsha 1 and 2 plants started operation in 2020 and in 2021 each had an installed capacity of 48 MW, for a total of 96 MW. To date, the Badamsha 2 wind turbines are the largest in the country in terms of size; the rotor has a diameter of 158 metres and is placed at a height of more than 100 metres. The two wind farms are part of Eni's strategy in the renewables sector, which aims to achieve a balanced and diversified portfolio.
