Lake Sevan – Victim of Energetic
Lake Sevan – Victim of Energetic
Lake Sevan has become a victim of energetic interests, which dominate over the
laws preserving Lake Sevan. The interests of the owners of energy companies are
represented, first of all, by 'International Energetic Corporation' CJSC. The
company owns Sevan-Hrazdan Hydrocascade, which uses the water of Lake Sevan
flowing through Sevan-Hrazdan canal to produce electricity. The cascade consists
of 7 stations with the aggregate capacity of 561 MW.
'International Energetic Corporation' CJSC registered in the Republic of Armenia
on 8 May 2003 and is the first producing company of 'Inter RAO UES'. In 2011 the
shares of 'International Energetic Corporation' CJSC were obtained by 'Rus
Hydro' OJSC. On the official website of 'Rus Hydro' OJSC, http://www.rushydro.ru/,
'International Energetic Corporation' CJSC is mentioned with two sentences in
the section of international activities, that the company operates Sevan-Hrazdan
Cascade on the Hrazdan River in Armenia. 'International Energetic Corporation'
CJSC is not represented in the assets of 'Rus Hydro' OJSC. In 2016 'Rus Hydro'
OJSC reached a decision to sell Sevan-Hrazdan Hydrocascade and informed about
its intention to receive proposals from the potential buyers. Nevertheless, so
far Sevan-Hrazdan Cascade is not included in the list of the assets for sale by
'Rus Hydro' OJSC. It is not a secret that the low productivity of electricity in
the hydrocascade is, particularly, conditioned with the limitation of water
outlets through Sevan-Hrazdan canal from Lake Sevan.
