Rehabilitation of the ageing plant, which was commissioned between 1943 and 1948, will entail the replacement of the two generating units and auxiliary systems, resulting in an increase in its installed capacity to 9.2 MW and in its annual electricity output by 56 per cent to 50.3 GWh. New efficiency and safety measures will also help the plant improve its resilience to climate change and adapt to changing water flow levels.
The modernization of the run-of-river station, which is an important supplier of electricity to the capital city of Bishkek, is being financed by EBRD, which agreed financing of €13.8 million in March, comprising a sovereign loan of €8.8 million and an investment grant of €5 million. The project will be implemented by Chakan GES, which operates nine small hydro plants with a total installed capacity of 38.5 MW in and around the city of Bishkek, located on the river Alamedin.
Contracts will be subject to the Bank’s Procurement Policies and Rules and are open for participation for firms from any country, unless otherwise specified in the procurement documents.
