DUSHANBE, 23.06.2018 /NIAT “Khovar”/. “Norak HPP is a grandiose facility, and water quality is impressive”, – said Nigeria’s Minister of Water Resources Suleiman Adamu in an interview with Tajik journalists during his trip to Norak HPP.

Yesterday, June 22, following the International High-Level Conference on the International Decade for Action “Water for Sustainable Development”, 2018-2028, a cultural program and an excursion to Norak and Roghun HPPs, as well as to Hissor Fortress were organized for participants and guests.

The visit to Norak HPP, located on the Vakhsh River, was unforgettable for the guests. Under the sound of the carnival they were met by girls in national costumes and the management of this HPP. The guests were able to get acquainted with the beauties of the Norak reservoir, visit dam and the engine room, where specialists of this plant provided detailed information.

Nigeria’s Minister of Water Resources Suleiman Adamu in an interview with Tajik journalists, in particular, said: “I am an engineer in the field of civil engineering, and I understand how grandiose this facility is. The water quality is very impressive by sight. It is obvious that the water in this reservoir came from mountain glaciers. In my country, mostly clay sandstones, so the water in all reservoirs is brown, and here it is crystal turquoise. Pleasant to admire”.
