Russia to Aid Construction of Coal-Fired Thermal Power Plants in Kazakhstan

On April 17, the Minister of Energy of Kazakhstan Almasadam Satkaliev and the Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation Nikolay Shulginov signed an agreement on the construction of coal-fired thermal power plants in the Kazakh cities of Kokshetau, Semey, and Ust-Kamenogorsk.

In welcoming the joint initiative, Minister Satkaliev stated that the construction of new thermal power plants will give powerful impetus to the future exploitation of the three regions’ extensive coal reserves.

With plans already in place, the construction of the first thermal power plant is scheduled to begin later this year.
