Russia, Kazakhstan, Kirghizia And China to Implement Joint Hydro-Electric Project

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.
