Assystem signs a JV with Uzbekistan Ministry of Energy

01 November 2019

Assystem and the Ministry of Energy of Uzbekistan have formalized the creation of a joint venture to oversee their cooperation in the implementation of the Central Asian country's energy transition. 

Uzbekistan intends to double its electricity production by 2030, raising its installed capacity from 13 to 27 gigawatts. Its new energy mix will include civil nuclear production capacities and new production infrastructure based on gas and wind power.

The agreement provides for a joint venture to be set up between the Uzbek authorities and Assystem by the end of this year. Assystem says its role will be to design, coordinate and manage projects to enable the country’s new energy mix to be put in place, with new production infrastructure, electricity transmission and distribution networks.

Assystem said that increased electricity production is "both a condition and a corollary of" economic development in many countries. The challenge, it added, is to meet the increased demand for energy while ensuring a sustainable energy supply and controlling greenhouse gas emissions.
