Uzbekistan: Surkhandarya 1,560MW CCGT Power Plant


The Project involves the design, construction, maintenance and operation of a greenfield combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant of 1,590MW capacity and associated infrastructure in Surkhandarya region in Uzbekistan. The Project is being developed by Stone City Energy (SCE, 25%), EDF (15%), Siemens Energy (25%) and Nebras Power (35%), through a dedicated project company SCE-Quvvat LLC.
Consistent with the Uzbekistan Ministry of Energy’s “Concept note for ensuring the electricity supply in Uzbekistan in 2020-2030”, the Project is supported by a 25-years Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) signed between SCE-Quvvat and JSC National Electric Grid of Uzbekistan in April 2021, as amended and restated in May 2023. The Project is developed using Siemens Energy’s SGT5-9000HL turbines with baseload efficiency of more than 60 percent. The Project is expected to be operational in January 2027.

Expected Outcome

To increase the availability of high-efficiency gas-fired power generation capacity in line with the power sector decarbonization strategy of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
