– Now everyone is talking about the plan for the construction of the Rogun hydroelectric power station Tajikistan on their own. Tell me how much it will be fulfilled?

– Indeed, the government of our country decided to complete the construction of the first stage of the Rogun hydroelectric power station on their own. However, involving investments and the assistance of the created consortium can implement the project in a shorter time and earlier get the return of the project.

– There are also a lot about the construction of small hydroelectric power stations, their work can partially remove the energy problem in the country. This is true?

– In Tajikistan, there are 947 rivers more than 10 kilometers long and a total length of 28 kilometers. On average, for the territory of Tajikistan, the density of the river network is 0.6 km/ km. Effectively use the energy of not only large rivers, but also small, this is an important task facing us. The Ministry of Construction of small hydroelectric power stations has been developed in the republic for the period 2008-2020. The construction of 189 small hydroelectric power stations is provided.
