Uzbekistan adopts hydropower engineering development program

Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Nov. 23

By Demir Azizov- Trend:

The Uzbek government has approved the hydropower engineering development program in 2016-2020 with a preliminary cost of nearly $890 million.

The program envisages the construction of new hydroelectric power plants and the modernization of existing ones.

Nine new hydropower plants are planned to be built and 15 existing hydropower plants are planned to be upgraded with a total capacity of 1,014 MW as part of the program. Uzbekenergo JSC is implementing 15 projects with a preliminary cost of over $576 million and a design capacity of 943 megawatts.

The company implements four projects for the construction of new hydroelectric power plants worth $69.5 million and a capacity of 23.5 megawatts. Eleven projects worth $507.11 million are directed to modernize the capacity of the existing hydroelectric power plants. As a result, the capacity of the hydroelectric power plants will increase by 919.9 megawatts.

Uzbekistan's Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources will implement nine projects in the coming five years. The preliminary total cost of these projects is $312.8 million.

The ministry will construct new hydro power plants with design capacity of 70.9 megawatts as part of five projects. The preliminary total cost of these projects is $174.1 million.

Another four projects totaling $138.7 million will provide modernization of operating hydro power plants. As a result, the capacity of these plants will increase by 465 megawatts.

The program will be financed with the own funds of the Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources and Uzbekenergo JSC ($478.16 million) and borrowings worth $411.25 million.

It is expected that the implementation of projects included in the program will ensure additional electricity generation in the volume of 5.253 billion kilowatt-hours annually by 2021.

Currently, 45 power plants with the capacity of nearly 13,000 megawatts, including 16 power plants of Uzbekenergo with the total capacity of 12,040 megawatts, operate in Uzbekistan's power supply system.

Up to 90 percent of electricity is produced by 10 thermal power plants of Uzbekenergo with the total installed capacity of 11.6 million kilowatts. The company's 29 hydropower plants with the installed capacity of 1.4 million kilowatts are mostly united within hydropower plant cascades.

The rest of the electricity is generated by autonomous thermal power stations of the industrial enterprises and small hydroelectric power stations belonging to the Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources.

In 2014, electricity production in Uzbekistan increased by 2.3 percent - up to 55 billion kilowatt-hours.
