Onshore Wind

One of the most cost-effective ways to capture renewable energy, onshore wind farms can be constructed with relative ease and speed. Usually built in less populated areas, wind turbines are surrounded by land that can still be used for agriculture. Construction and maintenance of wind farms can create jobs and support the local economy.

Masdar has developed Central Asia’s largest wind farm, the 500 megawatt (MW) capacity Zarafshan project. Generating enough renewable energy to power half a million homes and displacing over 1 million tonnes of carbon emissions a year, the plant paves the way for similar landmark projects in the region.

Together with partners Masdar has developed the Middle East’s largest operational wind farm, the 400MW Dumat Al Jandal project in Saudi Arabia. Masdar has also developed the first large-scale wind farms in Jordan and the Seychelles, with the 117MW Tafila wind plant and the 6MW Port Victoria Wind Power Project respectively.

Masdar and its partners are also developing Africa’s largest onshore wind farm, a 10GW mega-facility in Egypt.

The 103.5-megawatt (MW) landmark project will introduce cost-effective, large-scale, utility wind power to the UAE’s electricity grid, further diversifying the country’s energy mix and advancing its energy transition.
