Badamsha: our eolic project in Kazakhstan

Through the launch of the fields we want to contribute to the country's goal of obtaining 50% of energy from renewables by 2050.

Kazakh energy produced by the wind

In 2018, in Badamsha, Kazakhstan, we opened the construction site for our first wind farm, which will have an overall capacity of 48 MW. The installation, in the north-western region of Aktobe, represents our first large-scale investment in wind technology, and will produce 198 GWh annually for 25 years. The project, operational from late 2019, is covered by the agreement signed in 2017 between us, General Electric (GE) and the Kazakhstan Ministry of Energy. Following an agreement recently signed through our subsidiary ArmWind LLP, the Badamsha 1 wind farm will be joined by a second, Badamsha 2, also generating 48 MW. This will significantly increase the quantity of the country's energy sourced from wind, generating 200 GWh annually for 25 years.

We started the commercial production of Badamsha 1 in march 2020.

Safety first

We believe that workplace safety is a fundamental principle that we share with employees, contract workers and local communities. For that reason, we implement all necessary measures to avoid accidents, including organisational models to assess and manage risk, training programmes, skills development and the promotion of a culture of safety. 


GE Renewable Energy will supply the wind farm with 13 onshore wind turbines, 85 metres tall, with a rotor diameter of 130 metres and each with 3.8 MW of power. 

Environment and community

Badamsha 1, the wind farm launched in 2018, will provide the region with about 198 GWh of energy annually, increasing by 25% the energy generated by all the country's operational wind farms.


We realised this project in partnership with General Electric (GE), and the agreement is an important milestone for both companies. The wind farm is our first large investment in the sector, while for GE it is the first onshore project of its kind in the country.
