Project "GARADAGH Wind Power Plant" is going to be developed in the Garadagh district of Baku – in the industrial zone of the city of Baku in proximity to SOCAR cement base, NORM and HOLCIM cement plants (also includes SOCAR Methanol plant, Baku Deep Water Foundations plant, BOS Shelf seacoast base and a large number of medium and smaller size enterprises). The area of the site comprises approximately 36 hectares with surrounding available area making up a total of 300 hectares. The surface is a part of an undulating plain, with elevation differences from -26 m at the coastline to 100 m at the north-western border of the site. In general, within the boundaries of the site there are elevation differences - from 50 to 100 m.
Project site is located in the uninhabited area and as such is not going to have an impact on residents.
Estimated project capacity is 37.8 MW. Generated electricity will be sold to industrial customers – residents of the industrial zone with some residual volumes supplied to the national grid (State Company “Azerenergy”) under the state mandated feed-in tariff. The key client - a major global corporation operating the biggest plant in the area - has committed to purchase most of the generated electricity (Memorandum of Understanding signed).
