By the resolution of RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, a tender committee of "Ayg-1" solar photovoltaic industrial-scale project was established in Armenia. The committee will be headed by RA Deputy Minister of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure Hakob Vardanyan.
Reminder: in 2019, the Government of the Republic of Armenia approved "MASDAR ARMENIA PROGRAM" investment program. "MASDAR ARMENIA PROGRAM" was initiated by Abu Dhabi Future Energy Company (Masdar) founded in the United Arab Emirates and Armenia National Interest Fund established by the Government of Armenia.
The companies intend to build two solar photovoltaic stations on a total of 1,040 hectares of land in Aragatsotn and Kotayk Regions, each with a capacity of 200 MW. The stations will be called “Ayg 1” and “Ayg 2”. It is planned to eliminate about 520 hectares of land for the first station from Talin, Dashtadem, Katnaghbyur and Yeghnik communities. For the second station, it is planned to take about 520 hectares of land from Yeghvard and Nor Edesia communities.
The Government of the Republic of Armenia is considering taking the lands as a donation and has given a corresponding instruction to the Minister of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure of the Republic of Armenia. “Ayg 1” solar station is planned to be put into operation by the end of 2023.
