Residents of villages in the upper Vanj valley of the Gorno Badakhshan Autonomous Region (GBAO) have begun receiving electricity.
Abdullo Amonbekov, a spokesman for Pamir Energy Company, says the small hydroelectric power plant “Tekharv” with capacity of 400 kW, located in the Vanj district, has begun generating electricity after major repairs.
“This has allowed us to provide more than 600 households in the upper Vanj valley with electricity,” Amonbekov noted.
During the past winter season, Pamir Energy Company also completed rehabilitation of the small hydropower plant “Andarbak” with capacity of 350 kW, located in the Yazgulem jamoat of the Vanj district.
“Tekharv” and “Andarbak” power plants were reportedly damaged by mudflows in summer 2015.
The spokesman further added that construction of the small power plant “Motravn” with capacity of 300 kW was nearing completion in the Yazgulem jamoat.
The “Motravn” power plant is being constructed within the framework of financial cooperation between the governments of Tajikistan and South Korea. The power plant is expected to be put into operation in late March. (News.tj/Business World Magazine)
