English term or phrase: Almaty Power Company, APC
It is a name of a company in Kazakhstan. I need to make sure I translate it back into Russian correctly, therefore I require its original Russian name. Maybe someone based in Kazakhstan or Russia would know?

Many thanks,

Gala

Russian translation:Almaty Pauer Konsolidejted
Explanation:
I performed some Internet search (www.yandex.ru) and found no mention of Almaty Power Company. There is, nevertheless, Almaty Power Consolidated, a Kazakh-Belgian joint venture having a sort of monopoly on Almaty power market. In Russian its name is just transliterated as written above.
See URL's.
Hope this helps.

Almatynskaya energeticheskaya kompaniya


Explanation:
Almaty is the knew name of ex-capital of Kazakhstan.
As one might know, in production, distribution, and collection payments for electric supply, in CIS countries are a lot of intermeditary companies exist. So, as I can suggest, they say about a company which seemingly produces electric power. As for joint ventures, they usually are connected to distribution and selling.

One typical hint is to find a web-site of Kazakhstan goverment and look there.
