|Arunachal inks pact with Russian co|
NEW DELHI, Dec 12 – At a time when construction of big dams has generated much heat in Assam, Arunachal Pradesh has signed a Joint Cooperation Declaration with RusHydro International, an international Hydropower company partly owned by the Russian Government on the sidelines of the Russian President’s visit to India
The Joint Cooperation Declaration aims to create a mechanism for possible collaboration on hydropower education projects in Arunachal Pradesh under a Public Private Partnership Model after considering the international experience of RusHydro in the field of hydropower and other renewable energy sources.
Chief Minister Nabam Tuki termed it as a significant development in meeting human resources needed for the hydro-projects coming up in the State. He observed that as RusHydro has expertise and experience in providing modular education for developing technical manpower with its tie-ups with professional and reputed educational institutions, their cooperation would immensely benefit the youths of Arunachal Pradesh.
RusHydro is one of Russia’s largest power generating companies with 38.2 GW installed electricity generation capacity distributed over 70 renewable energy source facilities.
Interestingly enough at yesterday’s consultative meeting, a demand for cumulative Downstream Impact Assessment study was made by several organisations.
