UAE-based Masdar Company Set to Launch First Renewable Energy Project in Armenia

President Armen Sarkissian received representatives of the UAE-based Masdar Company Mohammed al-Shehhi and Manager at the Bids Department Vipul Goyal.

Masdar starts the first investment program in the field of renewable energy in Armenia, which will be launched in the near future within the framework of “AYG-1” solar photovoltaic program.

An agreement on the implementation of investment programs in Armenia by Masdar, one of the world leaders in the field of renewable energy, was reached during the official visit of the President of the Republic of Armenia Armen Sarkissian to the United Arab Emirates.

During the meeting with the representatives of Masdar company, President Sarkissian hailed the fact that high-level agreements reached during the visits to the United Arab Emirates are being implemented.

“We expect investments and new cooperation programs in other spheres – technology, agriculture, logistics. Our countries have a great potential for cooperation,” said President Sarkissian.
