Instead of Shuren hydropower plant in Mongolia, it is possible to build nuclear power plants or coal-fired power plants - Sergey Levchenko

Governor of the Irkutsk region Sergey Levchenko offers another alternative to the project unsafe for the Baikal ecosystem of the Shurenskaya HPP on the Selenga River: the construction of coal generation or nuclear power plants in Mongolia

Instead of Shuren hydropower plant in Mongolia, it is possible to build nuclear power plants or coal-fired power plants - Sergey Levchenko
As S. Levchenko reported to journalists on Friday, he discussed this issue with the Minister of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation, Sergey Donskoy, who heads the Russian-Mongolian intergovernmental commission, in Moscow on Wednesday. On the eve of this discussion, expert consultations on construction projects in Mongolia for hydropower plants and hydraulic structures were held in Ulaanbaatar.

"He (S.Donskoy) supported our initiative so that we could offer the Mongolian side either a few coal-fired power plants working on their coal, which is very good, or an atomic station," S. Levchenko told journalists.

"It's like our side is being forced to lower energy tariffs or build a new generation," the head of the region said, commenting on the situation with the construction of the hydroelectric power station in Mongolia.

Earlier, with reference to S.Donsky, it was reported that Russia offered Mongolia an alternative to the construction of the Shurenskaya HPP. Among the options was the increase in the supply of electricity from Russia - by increasing the capacity of the transmission line of Gusinoozersk-Darkhan, or the organization of supplies through Mongolia of Russian electricity to China.

“We understand that the country should develop, and for this additional energy is needed. We are ready to supply energy resources so that they can close their entire deficit, ”the minister said.

The project for the construction of hydropower plants in Mongolia includes the construction of the Shuren hydropower plant on the Selenga itself and two hydropower stations on the Selenga tributaries - the Orkhon and Aegyn-gol rivers. As previously reported by Interfax, the commission of the Security Council of the Russian Federation concluded that the construction of a number of hydraulic structures in Mongolia threatens Baikal, which is of significant economic importance for the Irkutsk region. So far, Russia has secured from the World Bank a freeze in financing the Mongolian hydropower plant.
