The information portal MEDIA-TURKMEN shared the plans of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan to improve the ecosystem of the Tuyamuyun Hydroelectric Complex, which were discussed during an online meeting of the working group of experts within the European Union project "Nexus Dialogue in Central Asia", implemented by the Regional Environmental Center for Central Asia (CAREC).
Tuyamuyun Hydroelectric Complex (THC) represents a solid WEF Nexus case. Through seasonal regulation of the water volume in the Amu Darya River, it provides essential water and energy resources to agricultural farms for growing melons, guards and other crops (wheat, cotton), as well as to fish farms. The facility also provides drinking water and electricity to the local population and private sector in the nearby areas in the territory of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. However, the growing siltation complicates effective water use for power generation and agricultural needs, which is a common challenge for all water bodies in Central Asia. The demo project aims to find technical solutions and investment opportunities to address the issue of intensive siltation of the Ruslovoe Reservoir at THC.
