Uzbekistan launches gas power plant
Uzbekistan has brought online a 240-MW gas-fired power plant, and has begun construction of a 220-MW piston gas power plant, the government reported on March 30.
Turkey's Cengiz Enerji built the first facility and is due to construct the second. The former, situated in the Tashkent region, was completed at a cost of $150mn and will produce 1.9bn kWh/year of electricity. The second in the Syrdarya region is projected to cost $140mn and will produce 1.9bn kWh/yr. It is expected up and running in September 2022.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
"The thermal power plant and a gas piston plant, both employing the very latest technology, will contribute greatly to the efficiency and capacity of Uzbekistan’s energy production," Uzbek first deputy energy minister Azim Akhmedkhadjaev commented.
