Turkish Aksa Energy is implementing an investment project in Uzbekistan to build a new combined cycle gas power plant with a capacity of 240 MW in Tashkent. The project is implemented based on an agreement signed by the company with the Ministry of energy of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

Despite certain difficulties arising from the global COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the company intends to complete the construction of the station in one year. To speed up the work, it is planned to transfer some of the company's specialists from other countries to Uzbekistan, reports news-agency "Dunya".

The project is based on the modern investment model of "public-private partnership". Aksa Energy will build and operate the power plant for 25 years. The Uzbek side has assumed guarantees to provide the plant with natural gas and purchase electricity generated by it.
