    Up to 19 small HPPs to come online in Azerbaijan’s liberated lands

    May 23, 2023 - Trend News Agency


      BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 23. Azerbaijan is implementing a project for reconstruction and construction of hydroelectric power plants (HPP) in the liberated lands, Trend has learned from a source familiar with the matter.

      The project envisages establishing a public-private partnership to generate electricity using the hydropower potential of the rivers that flow in the region of Karabakh and surrounding areas.

      The project’s advantage is that the rivers here have a high hydropower potential coupled with provision of guarantees by the state for the purchase of electrical energy.

      The project, which is proposed to be implemented in Kalbajar district, enjoys state support such as exemption of imported equipment from taxes and fees, allocation of a preferential loan and provision of a guarantee by the relevant authority for the purchase of energy.

      Overall, the number of proposed small HPPs is 19 with total installed capacity of 75 MW.

      “To ensure the full utilization of the region’s hydropower potential, the primary task is to restore the existing HPPs and reconstruct the destroyed hydropower plants, while the next step envisages the construction of HPPs (planned but neither designed nor built before the occupation) in newly identified and convenient locations,” said the source.

      Currently implemented in the Kalbajar district, the first stage envisages designing the master projects for small HPPs. They comprise AutoCAD drawings of electrical power plants, variants of SHPPs topographic plans, head structures, and pipelines, as well as the hydrological data on the calculated minimum and maximum river flow rates.
