Marking a strategic entry into the Bahrain market for the UAE's clean energy champion, the agreement for near-shore and offshore wind farms is Masdar's first in the Kingdom and will be the first project of its kind in the region and the Middle East.

At up to 2GW, this clean energy collaboration will support the Kingdom of Bahrain to accelerate the decarbonization of critical industrial sectors and open avenues to develop new market sectors. The Kingdom of Bahrain aims to reduce emissions by 30 percent by 2035 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2060, as outlined in its National Energy Strategy.

Bapco Energies Group Chief Executive Officer, Mark Thomas said, "Today marks a significant milestone in Bapco Energies' pathway towards sustainable energy development. Our partnership with Masdar demonstrates our commitment towards diversifying the Kingdom of Bahrain's energy mix to include cleaner energy sources, underscoring our role as leaders in renewable energy development. This strategic collaboration means a bold step towards realizing the ambitions outlined in Bahrain's National Energy Strategy, propelling us closer to our net-zero goals."

Masdar has developed a number of landmark wind projects across the world, including the 400MW Dumat Al Jandal wind farm, the largest in the Middle East and the first in Saudi Arabia, the 630MW London Array offshore wind project in the United Kingdom which powers half a million British homes and the 103.5MW UAE Wind Program, which uses innovative technology to capture low wind speeds at utility scale.
