TotalEnergies inks deal for 1 GW wind and battery storage project in Central Asia

TotalEnergies has inked a deal for the 1000MW Mirny wind project in Central Asia.

The company has already signed a PPA, which is regarded as the first one signed in the country for a wind development of such scale in Kazakhstan.

The project aims to build a 1GW onshore wind farm, the company said, adding that it will have a 600MWh battery energy storage system. The project is located in the Zhambyl region.

It has been reported that the generated power will be sold to the Financial Settlement Center of Renewable Energy, which is a public entity owned by the government, for the national grid.

TotalEnergies chief executive Patrick Pouyanné was quoted in a statement, "As a global energy leader, TotalEnergies is proud to drive energy transition in Kazakhstan through such an innovative project as Mirny.”

The company expects that the wind and battery project will be beneficial for the supply and security of the Kazakh power grid.

He further stated, "I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Kazakh authorities for their support and collaboration throughout this process. This represents a significant milestone in TotalEnergies' multi-energy strategy.
