About

We invite you to take part in HEAVY WIND conference, dedicated to logistics and installation in wind energetics in East Europe and Central Asia region.

All countries in the region show their desire to increase the renewable generation share in total energy consumption. Among the leaders is Turkey, which by 2027 will be among the ten largest countries in terms of installed renewable energy capacity along with China, USA, Germany, etc. Total installed capacity of renewable energy generation facilities in Turkey as of 2027 will increase by 64 percent – up to 90 gigawatts (GW).

Another leader is Uzbekistan, which in the coming years will deploy the generation of renewable energy sources with a total capacity of more than 8GW. ACWA Power Company (Saudi Arabia) will build the largest wind power plant in Central Asia with a capacity of 1.5 GW in Karakalpakstan. A project worth $2.4 billion will be implemented by 2026. Masdar Company (UAE) is already working on the construction of a wind farm in the Navoi region of Uzbekistan. Its capacity will be 500MW; investments are estimated at $600 million. Chinese wind turbine manufacturer Goldwind will supply 111 GW155 turbines with a capacity of 4.5MW for this project. In addition, in 2021 Masdar also signed a solar photovoltaic plants construction agreement with a total capacity of 897MW in a number of regions of Uzbekistan.

Uzbekistan’s neighbors are also striving to develop “green” energy. The only producer of wind energy in Central Asia is Kazakhstan, where the installed capacity of wind turbines in the period from 2014 to 2021 increased more than twenty times (from 0.05GW) but has not yet exceeded the mark of 1.2GW. The development of renewable energy is one of the most priority areas of the “economy of the future” in Kazakhstan. The Government of Kazakhstan plans to increase the share of alternative energy sources up to 30% by 2030. French Total Eren wind power plant construction stands out among the investment projects. Preliminary cost of the project is $1.9 billion. The facility will be put into operation in 2026-27, which will increase the total generation of renewable energy facilities in Kazakhstan by almost 50%.

As for the South Caucasus countries, all republics have also announced plans for transition to “green” economy. By 2030, wind farms with a total capacity of up to 200MW are planned to be built in Armenia. Necessary investments will amount about $200-300 million. Azerbaijan plans to implement projects for creation of 420MW of renewable energy generating capacity within a few years, including 350MW for wind energy, 50MW for solar energy and 20MW for bioenergy. Electricity consumption continues to grow in Georgia, which provides prerequisites for the further wind farms development in this Black Sea country. On the other side of the Black Sea, in Romania, British companies are planning to build one of the largest onshore wind farms in Europe with a capacity of 450MW.

These figures and facts show that the carriers of project cargo in these countries are waiting for good times. There are many projects and a lot of cargo ahead.

During the HEAVYWIND 2023 conference, we will discuss the renewable energy industry prospects in Turkey, Georgia, Baltic States and CIS countries. Wind power equipment transportation and installation experience (local and international), including aspects such as planning, customs clearance, road infrastructure preparation, special equipment availability, heavy bulky cargo delivery to hard-to-reach areas.

Special topic of the conference will be – trailer and crane equipment production trends for the wind power plants elements transportation and installation.

Conference language: English, Russian. Simultaneous translation is provided.

Conference will take place on March 28. For new business contacts, consolidation informal program is planned for March 29. As part of the business tour, delegates will visit the first and the only wind farm in Georgia in Gori city, the birthplace of Stalin. They will also climb the walls of one of the largest and well-preserved fortresses of the South Caucasus. After that, delegates will head to the former estate of the Georgian royal dynasty – Mukhrani village, where a national-style lunch with Chateau Mukhrani wine tasting will be organized in the ancient palace.

We invite you to become a participant of this important event!
