DAVOS, January 22. /TASS/. Swiss ABB plans to deal with energy projects in the Far East, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Trutnev said on Friday at the World Economic Forum.
"ABB wants to deal with energy projects. We had a fairly straight talk. I suggest they deal not merely with individual projects but furnish proposals at large on optimization of the energy support of the region," Trutnev said.
The Far East electric power supply system is "scattered", Trutnev said. Some regions have surplus electric power, while others suffer from its shortage, he added.
Furthermore, several Indian companies showed interest in the Far Eastern projects, including TATA, Trutnev said. "Reconnaissance teams will come that will clarify parameters and select sites," the official added.
