Uzbekenergo Publishes its Data on Exportation of Electricity

Tuesday 26 June 2018

TASHKENT (Podrobno.uz) — Chairman of the Board of Uzbekenergo, Ulugbek Mustafayev, said how much electricity Uzbekistan receives from neighbouring countries thanks to a single energy ring.

The unified energy ring in Central Asia was created under the Soviet Union and allowed Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan to use common capacities and prevent shortage of electricity. However, after the collapse of the USSR, the system gradually lost its importance due to disagreements between states. The full ring work resumed last year.

Mustafayev said:

The power system of Uzbekistan is located in the centre of the unified energy system of Central Asia. This provides favourable conditions for the exchange of energy between the states of the region. Currently, effective cooperation in this area is being carried out in accordance with intergovernmental agreements and concluded contracts.

According to him, Uzbekenergo has several important agreements with Kazakh companies in this direction. For example, agreements have been concluded with KEGOC to receive frequency management services in the amount of up to 1 GW, and from Energopotok LLP to provide services for the transit of electricity from Kazakhstan through the territory of Uzbekistan to the consumers of the Maktaaral district of the South Kazakhstan region in the amount 190 GWh.

Uzbekenergo also continues active work with OJSC Electric Stations (Kyrgyzstan) for the supply of electricity. “We reached an agreement on the import of electricity from Kyrgyzstan during this year in the amount of 500 GWh and successfully implement it in practice”, Mustafayev said.

He also added that this year the regime of joint operation of the energy systems of Uzbekistan and Tajikistan was restored. “We have a contract for receiving electricity from Tajikistan in the amount of 1,500 GWWh”, the head of Uzbekenergo said.

Now Uzbekistan intends to connect Afghanistan to its work by building a new power transmission line Surkhan-Puli-Khumri.
