Hydel power likely to get regulatory boost 27.5.2018 General News
Hydel power projects may get a regulatory boost to solve their problems towards offering a competitive tariff structure. "Extend the useful life of the project up to 50 years from existing 35 years and the loan repayment period up to 18-20 years from existing 10-12 years for moderating upfront loading of the tariff," Central Electricity Regulatory Commission has suggested in its consultation paper for the tariff regulation for 2019-2024.

Tajik clerics recommend dam-builders skip Ramadan 22.5.2018 General News
Muslim clerics in ex-Soviet Tajikistan have advised workers building what will become the world's tallest hydroelectric dam not to observe Ramadan, echoing comments from the country's secular authoritarian ruler. A spokesman for the religious affairs committee told AFP by telephone today that the fatwa (directive) "was issued primarily for the safety of workers engaged in construction" of the Rogun dam. "They work at a great altitude in difficult conditions, as well as underground," said the spokesman. The Rogun dam is a signature project of President Emomali Rakhmon and its Italian contractor is in a race against time to get the first unit online by November. Rogun, which at 335 metres will become the world's tallest dam, is a USD 4 billion project that Rakhmon views as vital to lifting Tajikistan out of poverty. Earlier this month Rakhmon said that "fasting without thinking about tomorrow" is "not the quality of a true Muslim". Ramadan, one of Islam's most revered holidays in which
