BEVAN GES TO BEGIN OPERATIONS IN FEW DAYS -- Kommunlst, No 170, 21 Jul 49 The So-van Hydroelectric Power Plant will be put in operation in a few days. This will improve the even flow of electric power to Armenian Industry and agriculture. Last year the Bevan water-intake installation was put in operation, thus allowing the Kanaker GES to operate at full capacity.

The flow of electric power to consumers must be made more reliable and constant, The coefficient of utilization of hydroelectric installations must be increased and water supplies conserved. Industrial enterprises must also lower the consumption of power per unit product. During the first 6 months of 1949, Armenian Industrial enterpris~s saved 9,700,000 kilowatt-hours of e_,ctric power. The Yerevan Carbide Plant alone oaved 3,337,000 kilowatt-hours. LAG IN BELORUSSIAN POWER WORK SCORED -- Covetekaya Belorussiya, No 147, 26 Jul 49 The 30 is endowed with exceptionally favorable possibilities for the development of rural electrification. Its sig,ificant water resources, rich supplies of peat, and industrial development provide all necessary conili tione for fupthsr electrification.. Nevertheless, the prauent tempo of rural electrification in Beloruesi:a is completely un:satisfartory and inadequate for fulfilling the taek;F'3t by the Party and government for conpletF feral electrification. At the beginning of 1949, only 307 kolkhozes end 173 MISe had been provided with electricity In Belorussia. Vitebsk, Gemel', and Breete oblae s are particularly lagging, fulfilling the 1949 plan for construction of hydroelectric power plants by lees than 20 percent. Gom91', Poles'ye Bobruyer., and Pinsk cblasts have not put a single hydroelectric power plant in operation this year. This is evidence of the poor warp of local organizations in waking rural electrification a matter of concern to all people. Socia~iat -petition ho- t,e n kolkhozes and rayons for fulf"ling the rural electrification plan has not been organized in Belorussia. Mass pxvpsgenr'_. d rected tovard -.ttracting the broad masses of kulkhcz worrers in constructing rural clectr_c po.,er pleats is also poorly carried out. According to the ,plan for Belcusoian ivral+ o lectrification in 1948-1950, hydroelectric pmrer plants with a total capacity of 26,000 kilowatts and steam- electric power pleats with a total capacity of 6,600 kilowatts are to be con- structed by the and of 1950. This plan to being poorly fulfilled. Only 50 hydroelectric power plants with a total capacity of 974 kilowatts were put in operation last year. Despite the fact that the plan for putting steam-electric power p:aute into operation was exceeded, the plan for the electrification of kolkhozes was not fulfilled: only 155 additional kolkhozes were provided with electricity. The 1949 rural electrification plan is also being carried out in an extremely uneat' efactory tense=. During the first h' if-y ,ar, the plan for electrification of iolkhozes was completed only 2.8 percent. Electrification work Is in progress in only 162 kolkhozes. During this saris period, only four hydroelectric power plants with a total capacity of 180 kilowatts were put in operation. Existing electric power plants and installations are not being operated as should be. Kolkhoz power plants are not always operated at full capacity. Electricity generated is used primarily for lighting and threshing and is quite inadequately applied to other forms of agricultural production. It Is entirely possible to utilize the potential of. existing and active power plants for the elect:.ikication of kolkhozes. More than 3,000 kilowatts from the Glcvenergo (Main Power Administration) power plants alone could be released for this purpose, SECRET 50X1-HUM Sanitized Copy Approved for Release 2011/07/06: CIA-RDP80-00809A000600250647-6 Sanitized Copy Approved for Release 2011/07/06: CIA-RDP80-00809A000600250647-6 SHI!ET Including 500 kilowatts apiece from the Slutal: and Mozyr' power plants and 400 kilowatts from the Brest Power Plane There are 924 mills, tnclhi+ng 507 water mills, in operation in the local, industry system. Although 158 electric power plants have been in- stalled at these mills; power plants should be constructed at 100 more mills. This would give significant aid to the electrification of kolkho:es, There are more then 150 engines in local industry an', industrial. cooperative brick plants which are used not more than 100 days out of a year Thero . engines could also be effectively utilized for the needs of rural electri:fira- tion. Industrial enterprises should also give more aid in the construction of rural power plants. -- N. Abraeimov, Deputy Chairman, Council of Ministers Belorusuian SSH.
