On January 26, a meeting on the issues of implementation of the program for guaranteed supply of electricity to new production facilities erected by Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Combinat until 2026 was held under the chairmanship of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Combinat is one of the flagships of the domestic industry, making a huge contribution to the national economy. The President of our country has determined a number of measures on further enhancing the plant’s potential, modernizing existing and organizing new enterprises. In particular, work has begun on implementation of 27 investment projects worth $3 billion, until 2026.
We set high goals, said the Head of our state. The launch of these strategically important facilities will provide an additional $1 billion a year, create new jobs.
As a result of implementation of these 27 projects, the production volumes at Navoi Mining and Metallurgical Combinat will increase by 30 percent, and more than 30 thousand jobs will be created.
Entering and ensuring uninterrupted operation of such large enterprises requires additional energy resources. So, by 2026 the demand of NMMC for electricity will increase by 303 megawatts and will reach 703 megawatts.
At the meeting, tasks on timely and qualitative implementation of projects on electricity supply to new capacities of the plant were thoroughly discussed.
