Russia wants more cooperation in the energy sector


At a meeting with Energy Minister D.Zorigt held on Friday, Russian Ambassador to Mongolia Iskander Azizov conveyed the willingness of Russian companies to cooperate with Mongolia in the energy sector.
Beginning the meeting, the Ambassador introduced Biotek Company, a Russian energy company that has processed a modern system of producing energy. He said that the system gives remote areas greater access to reliable and cheap energy, saving up to 70 percent of fuel consumption. Ambassador Azizov underlined that the company’s products can be useful to Mongolia’s energy sector.
Azizov also provided updated information about ASEN Company, which was selected for renovating a turbine at Darkhan’s thermal power station. The company has delayed the work for two years, not fulfilling the established agreement.
According to the Russian embassy, the company is expected to complete all work by the end of this year. Currently, ASEN exported auxiliary equipment to Mongolia. Representatives of the company report that the main equipment for installation, such as the turbine and turbine generator, are being shipped to Mongolia. The equipment is expected to arrive in Mongolia within two to three weeks.
In response, Minister Zorigt thanked the Ambassador for paying attention to these projects, and for providing information about Biotek Company, promising to study the company’s activities.
At the end of the meeting, Ambassador Azizov added that Russia’s Soyuz Company and Renova Group are willing to cooperate in thermal power station projects in Ulaanbaatar. These companies have estimated that the capacity of Thermal Power Station IV can be expanded by 150 megawatts.
The Ambassador added that these companies are ready to perform an extension of the plant, and underlined that political support can be provided as well.
