Feedbacks from our participants
Arni Thor SigurdarsonEmbassy of Iceland in Russia
The event is useful to establish new contacts, get relevant info about the potential in region, for cooperation. It is very useful to obtain information about industry status from regional ministries. I’ve held a lot of meetings with hydropower companies which are interested in cooperating with companies from Iceland.
Beknur MaratbekovNational Committee of Industry, Energy, and Subsoil of the Kyrgyz Republic
The Congress is very productive. Dedicated public authorities of the region, all major energy players are here. All interested parties get relevant information, engage in productive dialogues on unlocking investment in the industry. Holding this event is crucial for attracting investors in the region and for establishing a dialogue with energy companies and government. A lot of suggestions and offers are brought forward to facilitate business development.
Muzaffar Khakimovthe Ministry of Energy of the Uzbekistan Republic
This event plays a huge role in the integration of the energy systems of the Middle Asia. All hydropower players gather here. I am impressed by this event. Thank you, Vostock Capital.
Timeframe: full completion of the project is scheduled for 2024-2026
Operator: Samruk-Kazyna, KazMunayGas, the Ministry of Energy of the Republic of Kazakhstan
Cooperation between KazMunayGas, TotalEnergies EP Kazakhstan, Samruk-Kazyna is part of the efforts to support Kazakhstan’s goals in reaching carbon neutrality by 2026. The project will also help KazMunayGas to reach its strategic goal by 2031 on developing RES projects with a total capacity of not less than 300 MW to reject from electric power imports.
Timeframe: completion of construction is expected in 2030-2032. Commissioning is scheduled for 2028 Investment: over $2,5 billion Operator: Electric Power Plants This HPP is projected to include 4 hydropower generation units. Reservoir capacity is 6 billion cubic meters. It was planned that this project will help Kirghizia to reject from electric power imports.
Timeframe: commissioning of the Pskem HPP is expected before 2025
Investment: over $800 million
Three HPPs are expected for construction on the river Pskem - Pskem HPP, Mullalak HPP, and Upper-Pskem HPP. The agreements on supply of equipment for the project were concluded with General Electric. In December 2018, there was an agreement signed with RusHydro on joint development of a feasibility study and FEED for the construction of the Mullalak and Upper-Pskem HPPs.
The project on erection of facilities will be 2-phased. The first one includes construction of the Eovon HPP with a capacity of 140 MW which will generate 800 million kWh of electric power. Forecast price is $282 million. Phase 2 implies construction of the Fandaryo hydropower plant with a capacity of 135 MW valued at some $270 million capable togenerate 600 million kWh.
