What solution on the construction of Kambarata HPP-1 will be adopted by Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan?

Shavkat Mirziev, Uzbekistan President approved the proposal regarding Kambarata HPP-1 joint construction. He agreed with Almazbek Atambaev, Kyrgystan President: “We reached an agreement. Mr. Atambaev said that none of the HPPs will be constructed without participation of Uzbekistan. I absolutely agree and we will participate actively in projects. We will build Kambarata station together”. Before that, Tashkent opposed the construction of Kambarata-1. It was stated that the construction would cause water deficit and would lead to social instability.

Experts did not reach a unanimous agreement on the joint construction of hydropower facilities.

Ex Minister of Energy and Industry, Kubanychbek Turdubaev stated that HPP construction challenge could not be addressed by itself: “The intention to jointly build HPP means that countries will incur equal expenditures”.

Rasul Umbetaliev, Energy expert: “Water and irrigation are of vital importance for Kyrgyzstan. If Kambarata HPP is constructed, it will require a certain amount of water in summer”.

Experts think that neighbouring countries will also benefit from the construction of HPP. Energy expert Batyrkul Baetov highlighted: “Chinese investors also intended to build HPP on Kokomeren. But the construction was delayed, because companies did not reach agreement”.

In 2012, the inter-governmental agreement was concluded with Russia. The project was to be financed by Russia. But Kyrgyzstan government stated that the construction was delayed due to several reasons. Almazbek Atambaev said that Russia could not fulfil the obligations under the agreement and the construction could be delayed. In 2016, Zhogorky Kenesh denounced the agreement on the construction of small and medium HPPs of Upper-Naryn Cascade and Kambarata HPP-1. Previously, Kambarata HPP-1 was estimated at $3bn.
