It's intended to set up a Kazakh-Chinese-Russian consortium in Kirghizia.
Sagynbek Dordoyev, general director of Kirghiz Electric Stations joint-stock company, made a statement in Bishkek April 24, noting that the new consortium was being established in order to jointly finance the construction of two new hydro-electric stations along the local Naryn river and to ensure their subsequent operation.
According to Dordoyev, the sides haven't yet signed any official documents; however, a preliminary accord already exists. Uzbekistan is also studying the possibility of joining this project nowadays.
It will take about $2 mln to build two hydro-electric stations of the Kambaratinsky cascade. Their aggregate power-generating capacity is estimated at 1,260 mWt. Both power plants will be generating some 5 billion kWt of electricity per year. Moreover, their reservoirs will accumulate up to 4 billion cubic meters of water.
According to RIA-Novosti sources, electricity being generated at these new power plants will be transmitted outside Kirghizia just because local power-generating facilities completely meet republican power demand at this stage.
Kirghizia exported approximately 1 billion kWt/hours of electricity last year.
The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
The TurkStream, which runs along the bottom of the Black Sea from Russia's Anapa to Turkey, will consist of two lines, each with a capacity of 15.75 billion cubic meters of gas a year
