Kazakhstan to withdraw from Central Asian power grid in case document on parallel functioning of energy systems is not signed before 2013.
Kazakhstan is ready to quit the Central Asian power grid in case an
agreement on parallel functioning of energy systems is not signed before
2013, Alexey Borodin, Deputy Director of the National Electric Grid of
Kyrgyzstan, said at the government meeting today. Representatives of
Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kazakhstan will discuss parallel functioning
issues at the meeting on September 21-22 in Astana. "The document
on parallel functioning is supposed to be signed in Almaty before the
autumn. The intensive talks are held, there are 7 unresolved issues,
including transit. The combined heat and power plants needs at least 300
MW. Rationing will be required," he said. Kazakhstan announced
earlier about its possible withdrawal from the Central Asian power grid
in case Uzbekistan continues unsanctioned outtake of power. Kazakhstan
said Kyrgyzstan will be affected in this case and will have to ration electricity for 40%.
