Estimated cost of construction of a 300-megawatt Heating and Power Plant 2 is $200 million, Chairman of the Board of the National Energy Holding of Kyrgyzstan Aitmamat Nazarov has declared.
According to him, the capital is growing, new houses are being built and commissioned that need to be provided with heat. Therefore, there is a need to return to HPP 2 project.
“We need to complete the HPP 2, the Prime Minister instructed us. We will definitely do it. This HPP will run on gas not to pollute the environment. We are looking for investors,” Nazarov said.
He noted that local residents would not be relocated if the HPP working on gas were built. However, if it works using other fuels, then people would have to be relocated. (24.kg/Business World Magazine)
