    Afghanistan, Turkmenistan sign on power line project: power company

    January 28, 2022 - Xinhua News Agency


      KABUL, Jan. 28 (Xinhua) -- Afghanistan has signed a deal with Turkmenistan on a power line project for the Noor-al-Jihad substation recently activated in western part of Afghanistan, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), the country's main power supply company said on Friday.

      "After four days of talks held in Kabul among the DABS officials and members of a visiting delegation of Turkmenistan and representatives of Turkish Calik Enerji company, the contract for the extension of Noor-al-Jihad substation electricity from 110 kV to 220 kV has been signed," the company said in a statement.

      According to the company, the project involves double circuit power transmission line of 220 kV from 110 kV.

      A couple of days ago, the high-level delegation from Ministry of Energy of Turkmenistan arrived in the Afghan capital Kabul to discuss the legal and technical issues of cooperation on power projects including the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan power project and the Noor-al-Jihad substation.

      Afghanistan has been facing power shortages. The mountainous country needs 850 megawatts of electricity per year, with 620 megawatts imported from Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Iran, and 230 megawatts supplied by domestic sources, according to DABS officials. Enditem
