The thermal power plant (TPP), which is located in the area of the chemical plant of Armenia’s Vanadzor city, will be operated in a foreseeable future, and this will create new jobs, Lori Regional Governor Artur Nalbandyan stated during a briefing with news reporters.
In his words, they are attempting to seriously focus on industry. “In recent years, Vanadzor had serious problems with chemical production, and this industry is lags behind to this day,” Nalbandyan said.
Lori’s regional governor also informed that a coal mine is discovered in Karabakh, and this mine will soon be operated. “Vanadzor places large hopes on this coal mine; it will help operate the TPP,” Artur Nalbandyan noted, adding that TPP will operate in Summer 2012.
