Bishkek HPP modernization. No overestimation of work cost found

The results of forensic examination of the modernization of Bishkek Heating and Power Plant were published on Facebook.

The experts were asked to find out whether there were facts of overestimation of the cost of work. Expert finding says that it was not possible to determine this.

Construction work by the Chinese company TBEA was carried out in accordance with the requirement of the building standards.

At least four criminal cases were initiated and seven former top managers of the energy sector were arrested, including the former head of the Energy Holding Aibek Kaliyev, former general director of Electric Stations JSC Salaidin Avazov, on the breakdown and modernization of Bishkek HPP.

In addition, two former prime ministers Sapar Isakov, Zhantoro Satybaldiev and ex-mayor of Bishkek Kubanychbek Kulmatov are also in custody. All of them were charged with corruption.
