Uzbekistan to announce tender to modernize two hydro power plants for 165m

15 October 2013

Uzbekistan's state energy company Uzbekenergo in November will announce a tender for modernization of two hydro power plants in the Tashkent region, the company said.

"Prequalification selection has been extended until the end of October, and a tender to select general contractors will be announced in the first half of November," a company representative said. 
A project to modernize the Farkhad HPP and HPP #14 of the Lower Bozsui Cascade provides for replacement of generators and turbines, electrical and communication equipment. The project will increase the total generating capacity of both plants by 17.3 MW. The project is to be completed in three years. 
The 5.7 million project will be financed by the Islamic Development Bank (0 million) and funds from Uzbekenergo. 
Uzbekenergo is currently considering six projects worth 5 million to modernize hydro power plants. In particular, modernization of HPP cascades in the Samarkand, Tashkent, and Fergana regions will replace their technological equipment in two years and increase their total generating capacity by 15 MW. The projects will be financed through loans from international financial institutions and money from the Uzbek side. 
Uzbekistan now has 45 power plants with a total generating capacity of 12.4 thousand MW. Their electricity generation potential is 57 billion kWh a year.
