Takhiatash power plant to get $300m ADB loan

Takhiatash power plant: The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is to lend Uzbekistan $300 million for the modernization of  the Takhiatash combined heat and power plant (CHPP) in the north-west autonomous Karakalpakstan region. Electricity demand in Karakalpakstan and neighbouring Khorezm is expected to grow twice as fast as the country average, and the ADB estimates that the modernisation project will increase the capacity of CHPP to meet power requirements in western Uzbekistan as a whole.
