From the beginning of this year, Chinese companies have been facing several difficulties in international communications, including transportation, which was caused by pinpoint outbreaks of COVID-19.
However, despite all the difficulties, the development of new energy projects in Kazakhstan continues. One such example is an upcoming 50 MW photovoltaic power plant, self-invested by the largest copper mine in Kazakhstan.
LONGI provided high-efficiency and high-power p-PERC monocrystalline modules for the project, which were continuously delivered to the site until June of this year.
With all the necessary pre-commissioning and grid connection, it is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere by 70,000 tons per year, making a tremendous contribution to optimizing the tracking of the carbon footprint of products in manufacturing enterprises.
During the next two days, Chinese President Xi Jinping will take part in the summit of the 22nd meeting of the Council of Heads of State of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Samarkand and visit Kazakhstan at the invitation of the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev.
In an article titled “Promoting China-Kazakhstan Relations to Achieve Greater Development in the Future”, Jinping mentions the completed 100MW Zhanatas wind power project and many other manufacturing and construction projects.
This gave a powerful impetus to Kazakhstan’s economic and social development, which brought tangible benefits to the people of the two countries.
According to an analysis of IHS data, Kazakhstan plans to ensure a 50% transition to renewable energy sources by 2050. At the same time, the country’s government emphasizes that mining companies must produce products in an environmentally friendly way.
As of 2021, the total installed capacity of power plants in the Republic of Kazakhstan was 26.9 GW, of which 4.977 GW came from renewable energy sources with an installed photovoltaic capacity of 1.719 GW. According to the IHS report, this figure is expected to reach 2 GW by 2026.
