TotalEnergies strengthens its presence in renewable energy in Kazakhstan. In addition to its two solar power plants in operation (with a capacity of 128 MW), Total Eren has signed an agreement with its partners Samruk-Kazyna and KazMunayGas to develop the Mirny project, the largest wind energy project ever initiated in Kazakhstan.
The project is part of the intergovernmental agreement on the implementation of cooperation in the field of combating global warming, signed by France and Kazakhstan. The 200 wind turbines, totalling 1GW of installed capacity, will be combined with a 600 MWh battery storage system. The project will supply more than 1 million people in Kazakhstan with low-carbon electricity.
