Uzbekenergo State JSC will build the external power supply facilities worth $ 62 million for an Angren-Pap electrified railway line under construction, which will connect the Fergana Valley with other regions of the country in 2014-2016, a representative of the company told Trend on March 6.
In particular, the company will construct the external power supply facilities, including 110/220 kilovolt lines. The project will be financed at Uzbekenergo’s own expense.
Uzbekistan started construction of the Angren-Pap new electrified railway in summer 2013.
It was reported that the Angren-Pap railway line worth $1.9 billion, with a length of 129 km should run through the Kamchik pass and link the three oblasts in the east of the country — Andijan, Namangan and Fergana — with the remaining part of Uzbekistan. The project envisages the construction of two tunnels.
