TSKHINVAL, December 29. /TASS/. South Ossetia will built small hydro power plants, the republic’s president Leonid Tibilov told TASS on Tuesday.
"After considering a number of projects, I have decided to build small HPPs in South Ossetia to provide the residents with uninterrupted power supplies if North Ossetia’s major line switches off," the president said.
Currently South Ossetia receives electricity from Russia through the Transcaucasian line, but disruptions occur often due to numerous accidents dependent on severe weather conditions. According to the president, "the weather in high mountain regions has its own rules," especially in winter.
The project includes the construction of a series of HPPs on the Great Liakhvi river and the Little Liakhvi river.
"South Ossetia has high water potential, so we should use it to build our own HPPs," Tibilov said.
