By the decree of the Azerbaijani President, Azerenerji constructed and put into operation 52 modular units in Baku, Nakhchivan, Astara, Khachmaz and Sheki regions. They are operating consumable natural gas which consists of energy modules each capable of 8.7 MW. The contractor of the construction is Finnish company Wartsila.
Construction of the power stations will enable growth in power production in Azerbaijan by 450-460 МW.
