Tashkent has hosted a workshop for representatives of key industrial enterprises
The Xth International Industrial Fair and Cooperation Exchange
Promoting Development of Enterprises
Acting President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev had a telephone conversation with President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov on 26 October 2016.
Shavkat Mirziyoyev cordially congratulated Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov with the occasion of a significant date – the 25th anniversary of Turkmenistan’s independence and wished him new successes in his responsible work, and the friendly people of Turkmenistan - the well-being and further progress.
In his turn, President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov expressed sincere gratitude for warm congratulations and conveyed personal wishes of peace, tranquility and prosperity to the brotherly nation of Uzbekistan.
During the conversation, it was noted that in historically a short period, friendly Turkmenistan, thanks to a deliberate strategy of large-scale socio-economic reforms and political transformations, has achieved high goals in ensuring the continued growth of well-being and spiritual renewal of talented and diligent Turkmen people, as well as increasing the country’s prestige in the international arena.
Our peoples are closely linked by centuries-old relations of sincere fraternal friendship and good neighborliness, common traditions, customs and cultural values, which create a solid and immutable foundation for developing and deepening long-term comprehensive cooperation.
During the conversation the leaders of Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan discussed the pace of implementation of the agreements, reached at recent bilateral meetings on various levels, on priority areas of further enhancing mutually beneficial cooperation in political, diplomatic, commercial, economic, transport and communications, cultural-humanitarian and other spheres.
Shavkat Mirziyoyev and Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov confirmed the firm willingness to steadily continue and develop constructive, trust-based and open Uzbek-Turkmen dialogue in all areas of the bilateral agenda and on international issues for the well-being of the two friendly nations, as well as for the security and stability in the Central Asian region.
The event was aimed at building the capacity of specialists of mining, oil and gas and chemical industries in energy efficiency.
The event was initiated under a joint project of the World Bank Group and the Ministry of Economy, aiming at enhancement of skills of domestic experts in the field of energy efficiency.
Within two weeks, nearly one hundred specialists of domestic enterprises attended a course, which was organized by the program of the German Integration Environment & Energy GmbH in partnership with domestic UB1 Consulting and Uzbekenergo Research and Engineering Center. Led by leading international experts, the workshop covered the issues of energy audits and energy monitoring in industrial plants. The course also included a study of modern energy-saving technologies in the mining, chemical, oil and gas industries, the methods of heat recovery in process gases, the use of low-grade heat sources in metallurgical production.
The first week of training was assigned to theory on management and efficient use of energy resources. At the close of the course, all participants underwent the test trials, which identified the most advanced specialists from each company and industry. They were invited for a three-day practical course with applied classes, where specialists learned making a decision on reducing energy intensity in production processes and implementing energy efficient projects. The practical part of the training included skills in data analysis, modeling, and development of solution schemes. The participants presented their own situational models and ways of addressing the problems of energy efficiency in industrial plants.
“Our plant ranks among the largest enterprises, which consume significant amounts of power during the production process,” says Deputy Chief Power Engineer of Uzmetkombinat Usmon Abdullayev. “Every year we take integrated measures on rational use, loss reduction and energy saving. Therefore, the involvement in the energy efficiency project for industrial enterprises is very useful for us.”
As noted by Usmon Abdullayev, the company has already implemented four projects, thereby ensuring more than 1.5 million kWh/year of energy savings. For example, the introduction of new equipment at the drive of the pump unit allowed reducing up to 30% of energy consumption, decreasing inrush current and voltage drop in the power line, and network losses. The abovementioned measures have resulted in the increase of engine efficiency and power. The introduction of modern equipment have ensured the smooth motor starting, increased the reliability of the water supply system, reduced the number of intermediate repairs and overhauls of the main line, and its downtime.
In addition to a significant reduction in energy consumption, the company introduced full automatic operation control. It allows getting real-time information about the state of the unit and heating elements, which should improve the product quality and reduce shortcomings. The same can be referred to other innovations. The replacement of worn-out air compressors with energy-efficient screw compressors, in addition to reduced power consumption, allowed eliminating water cooling and ensuring full control of multiple compressor system, and prompt responding during emergencies. For the future, the company schedules two more projects that are currently under development.
The organizers believe that workshop participants will apply their knowledge and skills directly in the production, offering up-to-date and effective ways of cutting energy costs, and contributing to the cost reduction and enhancement of the product competitiveness.

At the moment they are offered more than 70 kinds of agricultural machinery leasing. In order to enhance further cooperation with industrial enterprises and factories of our country we plan to conclude contract for 218 billion soums’ (currency rates of CB RU from 28.10.2016, 1$= 3083.96 Â soums).
Enterprises of the system of the Joint Stock Company “Uzbekenergo” also take part in the Industrial Fair. In the “Uzbekenergo” company through the implementation of more than 40 investment projects until 2020 will be enhanced energy potential, conducted the modernization of industry enterprises, as well as will be introduced energy-saving technologies.
Such innovations are reflected on the stands of dozens of enterprises as part of Joint Stock Company “Uzbekenergo”. For example, the joint venture LLC “Quyosh Issiqlik Energiyasi” offers water heating systems, the joint venture “Elektr Quvvat Qurilmalari” - modern switches, “Elektrtarmoqqurilish” enterprise - high-voltage electric wire, steel constructions, “Savdpenergo” enterprise - clothing for electricity sector workers.
‘This fair allow us to directly enter into contracts in the framework of sectoral and inter-sectoral cooperation,’ said general director of JV “Yorkin chiroqlar” Khairullo Atamboev. ‘Our Uzbek-South Korean joint venture has a production capacity of 2.5 million pieces of energy saving lamps per year. If in 2015, we produced 2 types of light bulbs, this year we have mastered the production of seven types of lamps. Next year we plan to increase this number to ten’.
