Baku, Azerbaijan, Sept. 25
Ali Mustafayev - Trend:
Kyrgyzstan plans to increase the number of energy sources by commissioning new capacities and reconstruction of the existing electric power sources.
The completion of the project "Modernization of CHPP in Bishkek" is planned by the end of 2017.
“Modernization involves the dismantlement of 8 boilers and 4 turbo-generators which have reached limitation of use, with the installation of 2 turbo-generators of 150 MW each and 2 boilers with a steam output of 550 t/h each,” a source in the National Energy Holding of Kyrgyzstan told Trend.
After the implementation of the project "Modernization of the Bishkek CHPP", the installed capacity is expected to reach 812 MW of electric power and 1294.2 Gcal/h of heat output, the source added.
By the end of 2019 the second hydroelectric unit of Kambaratinskaya HPP-2 is planned to be put into operation, due to the financial support of the Eurasian Economic Union’s Anti-Crisis Fund.
With the launch of the second hydroelectric unit, the capacity of the station will increase to 120 MW, with an increase of electricity generation to 255 million kW/h, according to the Holding.
The completion of another important project "Rehabilitation of the Toktogul HPP Phase 2" is planned by 2021, the source said.
The project envisages the replacement of two hydroelectric generators with 60 MW increase in capacity of each unit.
Among the energy projects modernization of the “At-Bashinskaya HPP” and implementation of the "Reconstruction of the Uch-Kurgan HPP" projects were mentioned.
Both projects provide a set of works to replace the main and auxiliary equipment with modern equipment to increase the capacity.
The issue on construction of the “Karakechinskaya TPP” is also being considered.
