Kyrgyzstan launches Kambarata 2 hydropower plant

Kyrgyzstan has launched a $200 million hydroelectric power station, wire services reported. The hydro project is located on Kyrgyzstan's Naryn River.

Acting President Roza Otunbayeva took part in a ceremony to start the first unit of the Kambarata 2 hydro project, which will have a capacity of about 50 to 70 MWh.
