Rosatom plans to build foreign wind farms abroad by 2024, said the head of Rosatom State Corporation Alexey Likhachev in a message to employees posted on July 29.

The development of wind power generation within the country opens up prospects for the export of technologies. We are now negotiating the construction of wind farms in Southeast Asia, preparing for tenders in South Africa and Turkey. Moreover, Russian equipment will be used in the construction of these wind farms. We are planning to build our first foreign wind farm by 2024“, said Alexey Likhachev.
