The objectives of the Project are to (i) provide electricity access to target settlements in GBAO and Khatlon regions of Tajikistan and (ii) improve the reliability of electricity supply for grid-connected customers in GBAO region
In December 2017, the Government of Uzbekistan and the Government of Afghanistan agreed to jointly develop a 500-kilovolt (kV) power interconnection from the Surkhan substation in Uzbekistan to the Khwaja-Alwan substation in Afghanistan.
The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the implementation of the CAREC Energy Strategy 2030 in achieving its long-term vision of a reliable, sustainable, resilient, and reformed regional energy market by 2030.
The objective of the Project is to rehabilitate and increase the generating capacity of six power generating units of Nurek HPP and improve their efficiency.
The project will considerably help improve regional energy trade, as it will build and support requisite natural gas supply and transportation capacity across the TAPI countries.
The technical assistance (TA) will have the following outcome: regional energy trade and cooperation enhanced. The identified infrastructure projects, which are necessary for connection of Afghanistan, Turkmenistan and other potential new electricity markets to Central Asian Power System (CAPS), will be submitted for endorsement of the CAPS governments at Central Asia United Power System Council Meeting.
The regional transaction TA facility will provide project preparation support to a series of ensuing projects in Central Asia: (i) Power Distribution Enhancement, Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Projects in the Kyrgyz Republic; and (ii) Power Sector Development Program in the Republic of Tajikistan.
The Tajikistan Rural Electrification Project will finance the construction of electricity generation and distribution infrastructure to provide off-grid solutions or connect to the central grid vulnerable communities in Tajikistan’s eastern Gorno–Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast (GBAO) and southern Khatlon region.
The proposed project will replace ageing electrical and mechanical equipment for power generation and transmission at the Uch-Kurgan hydropower plant (HPP) in the Naryn River cascade, and undertake silt and sedimentation removal which hinders the proper operation of hydromechanical equipment of the HPP.
This is the second subproject which is being launched simultaneously with the first subproject - Modernization of Coordinating Dispatch Center Energiya (CDC). The technical assistance subproject will have the following outcome: cross-border clean energy trade increased using high-level technology by CDC.
The technical assistance (TA) subproject will have the following outcome: cross-border clean energy trade increased using high-level technology (HLT) by coordinating dispatch center (CDC) Energiya. The HLT will replace manual processes to allow CDC to operate in a real-time regime.
The regional knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) cluster will support an increase in regional power trade among Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan.
The proposed project will (i) install modern relays, circuit breakers, instrumental transformers, and ancillary equipment and systems at eight 220kV and two 500-kilovolt (kV) interconnection points; (ii) establish two new 500-kV interconnections; and, (iii) provide capacity building to Barki Tojik staff in reliability of parallel operations.
The project will (i) build about 1,100 kilometers (km) of new 110-kilovolt (kV), 220 kV, and 500 kV transmission lines; (ii) construct four new substations; and (iii) expand three existing substations.
The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance aims to pilot test and build expertise on the emerging floating solar photovoltaic (FPV) technology to diversify the energy mix, increase energy security, and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
