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.
