Mar 3, 2008 - BBC Monitoring Central Asia
Uzbekistan has resumed power supply to Tajikistan,
a source in the Barq-i Tojik [Tajik Electricity] open
joint-stock holding company has told Asia-Plus.
The supply of electricity from Uzbekistan started
on the first day of the spring, 1 March.
According to information from the source, the country
got 8.2m kWh of electricity from Uzbekistan over the
past 24 hours. Yesterday the country got 17.6m kWh
of power in total, 9.4m kWh of which was from Turkmenistan
and the rest from Uzbekistan.
At the same time, power supplies from Kyrgyzstan
were stopped on 1 March. Kyrgyzstan had lately supplied
200,000 kWh of power a day to Tajikistan.
We should recall that Uzbekistan stopped power supplies
to Tajikistan on 25 February due to technical problems
at thermal power stations that are the main producers
of electricity in that country.
