New company in hydro-energy sphere to be established in Uzbekistan

New company in hydro-energy sphere to be established in Uzbekistan President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev announced this when looking at the Sardoba water reservoir.

At the initiative of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, work had been started in the year 2010 on the creation of this water reservoir in an area through which the Janubiy Mirzachul canal’s central strand runs.

The construction of this hydro-facility is to be completed this year. So far 922 million cubic metres of water has been collected there. This makes it possible to use fertile lands in Sirdaryo and Jizzakh Regions and to increase agricultural crop yields.

Multi-functional farms are being developed so that people can do repeat sowing and earn additional incomes.

The Sardoba water reservoir will create big opportunities for agricultural labourers and farmers in this area, said the Head of State.

In the course of the President’s visit to the People’s Republic of China, important agreements were reached in the hydro-energy sphere too. In cooperation with that country, a 15 MW small hydro-electric power station will be built near the water reservoir.

The Head of State said that forward-looking measures were being worked out to develop the country’s alternative energy sector and that a new company would be established in the hydro-energy sphere.

A recreation zone will be created around the water reservoir.
