Belarus, Czechia keen to boost cooperation in energy

MINSK, 25 April (BelTA) – The two counties showed interest in expanding cooperation during the meeting of the Belarusian-Czech working group on cooperation in the energy sector, which is taking place in Grodno from 24 to 25 April, BelTA learned from the website of the Belarusian Energy Ministry.

The meeting participants discussed ways to boost bilateral cooperation in the energy sector, including in trade, economy, and investment. They gave brief presentations of their companies, outlined their key interests and lines of business, exchanged opinions on the upgrade of energy facilities, energy efficiency, and the use of renewable energy sources.

The sides expressed interest in launching more joint projects to branch out into third countries with their joint products. They pointed to the potential to further develop mutually beneficial relations in a number of promising fields. The agreements reached at the meeting will be reflected in the final protocol.

The negotiations and working meetings brought together representatives of the Belarusian Energy Ministry, the state-run production associations Beltopgaz and Belenergo, the Belneftekhim concern, the state-owned companies Grodnooblgaz and Grodnoenergo, the Belarusian nuclear power plant, and Novogrudok Gas Equipment Plant.

Belarus and Czechia have already set in motion a number of energy-related projects, among them the participation of the Czechia-based Mavel company in some hydro energy projects of the Belarusian energy system (the hydroelectric power stations in Polotsk and Grodno), the construction of a facility to process turf and produce substrates at the Glinka turf company.

The Belarusian-Czech working group on cooperation in energy was set up in 2009. Its members consider the topical issues of cooperation in the energy sector, including the development of natural and liquid natural gas infrastructure, hydro energy, turf industry, transportation and storage of gas. The working group convenes twice a year.
