Context and challenges
Uzbekistan is a developing country, growing at 7% per year and has a population of over 32 millions.
To support this strong growth, the State must both increase its electricity production capacity and rapidly modernize its electricity networks, the design of which dates back to the Soviet years and changed only slightly after 1991. The country also wants to integrate new intermittent (renewable) or basic (thermal and nuclear) electricity generation facilities into its energy mix.
This client, a major player un the energy industry, has a main design office available, which does not yet benefit from technical references or modern design resources to meet this challenge.
This client called upon Assystem to operate as an international partner to facilitate this transition and access to international practices, through a global mission of consulting, project management and more broadly support.
