LONGi to ship 1GW of PV modules to Uzbekistan, contributing to low-carbon development of Central Asian countries


LONGi has announced the shipment of the first batch of 20MW of modules for a 1GW project in Uzbekistan, the milestone coinciding with the inauguration of the China Railway Express Xi’an to Tashkent freight service.

The construction of the project in Uzbekistan was signed off during a recent visit to China by the  Uzbek energy minister and is currently the largest overseas PV project to attract investment by Chinese companies. The project will involve the building of two 500MW solar plants in the country’s Qashqadaryo and Buxoro regions by the China Energy Engineering Corporation (CEEC), with LONGi exclusively supplying all 1GW of its latest Hi-MO 7 modules. Once operational, the plants will generate an annual 2.3 billion kWh of electricity,  reducing annual natural gas consumption by about 588 cubic meters.

Company chairman Zhong Baoshen commented that the shipment of modules to Uzbekistan marks the first overseas PV project since the China-Central Asia summit.

LONGi has achieved significant success in Central Asia, providing 1/3 of the core equipment for projects in five countries within the region. In Uzbekistan specifically the company has participated in several government-led projects and in February it  followed up by signing three MoU cooperation agreements. Moving forward, LONGi has a long-term commitment to being heavily involved in the country’s green energy transition.
