Project name: Sebzor
Project location: Shokhdara River, Tajikistan
Installed capacity: 11 MW
Project developer/owner: Pamir Energy Co. (PEC)
Assessment tool: Hydropower Sustainability ESG Gap Analysis Tool (HESG)
Assessment stage: Preparation
Assessment date: 9-18 August 2021
The assessment found that Sebzor HPP will make a significant positive impact to climate change mitigation by providing a very low-carbon source of power and displacing high-carbon energy sources such as firewood, diesel and coal. The project’s environmental impacts are relatively minor due to its small footprint (small reservoir, low diversion weir and limited land disturbance as the pipeline is laid into the existing roadway) and limited biodiversity values.
The project has well-developed processes for labour management and Operation Health and Safety as a result of Pamir Energy’s extensive experience and reputation as one of the most important and attractive employers in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Oblast region of Tajikistan.
The project has two significant gaps in the Community Impacts and Infrastructure Safety topic. Plans are in place to resolve the gaps in the coming 6 months.
The project is undergoing a 60-day period of public comments until 17 December 2021. To submit comments, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
