The European Union will give 1 million euros for the construction of a mini-hydroelectric power station in the Fergana region

 The grant will cover half of the cost of the project, which will provide electricity to 2,100 homes.

Uzbekhydroenergo and the Hydro4U consortium will receive 1 million euros from the European Union for the purchase of equipment for the new hydroelectric power station.

The parties signed the corresponding agreement on June 21, at the annual meeting of the participants of the Hydro4U small power plant construction project. We are talking about a projected small hydroelectric power station with a capacity of 2.2 MW near the village of Shakhimardan, Fergana region.

The power plant, after launching in 2023, will annually generate 12.8 million kWh of electricity. The project will provide energy to 2,100 households, which are home to 7,000 people, as well as provide additional capacity for production.

The implementation of the project is estimated at 2 million euros. Of these, half will be allocated by the EU in the form of a grant for the purchase of technological equipment. Another 12 billion soums will be provided by the Uzbek side.

Uzbekhydroenergo also agreed to supply mechanisms for micro-hydro power plants with the Austrian company Global Hydro. It is noted that the installation of block-modular systems will reduce construction costs by about 500 thousand euros.

The Hydro4U consortium provides the countries of Central Asia with modern European technologies in the field of small hydropower. The work of the project is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 program, and 13 organizations and companies from 8 countries are participating in its implementation.
