The financing from EBRD will be complemented by a $34.3m loan from the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB); $13.3m loan from the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC); and a concessional loan of up to $ 22.9m from the Green Climate Fund (GCF).

Zhanatas Wind-Power Station is a special project company operated and owned by China Power International Holding (CPIH) in partnership with Visor Investments Coöperatief.

The loan amount will be used by Zhanatas Wind-Power to construct and operate the wind farm
Zhanatas Wind-Power Station will also develop a 8.6km 110kV single-circuit line linking the facility to the national grid.
