Shagaya Wind Project

The Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR) has developed the innovative Shagaya Renewable Energy Project, which constitutes the first phase (Phase I) of an ambitious Master Plan to generate approximately 3.2GW at the Shagaya Renewable Energy Park. Phase I sets the basis for future renewable energy developments in Kuwait through the installation of a 50 mega-watt (MW) Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) plant that was commissioned in December 2018, a 10 MW Wind Farm that was commissioned in May 2017, and a 10 MW Photovoltaic (PV) plant. The official Grand Opening for the Shagaya Renewable Energy Park was held in February 2019.


The Shagaya Wind Farm has a total gross installed capacity of 10 MW and consists of five (5) wind turbines placed in one row and connected in three (3) strings to the Substation at a Medium voltage level of 11 kV. The project took on an EPC contract with Elecnor S.A as per the specifications shown below:
