Barmek Azerbaycan (the Рѕperator of the power distribution network of Baku and Sumgayit) may take part in the electrification of the African state of Liberia, president of Barmek Azerbaycan Huseyn Arabul told Trend.

According to him, president of Liberia has invited the company to take part in the establishing of the power system of Liberia. В"We plan to visit the country and hold talks there with the country’s government. We are not familiar with the situation there so far, however, it is known there is no energy system in Liberia. Besides, it is very risky to work in Liberia due to the unstable political situation. Therefore, a lot of companies do not take a risk to operate there, but we are ready for that”, he said.

Arabul noted, by the preliminary estimates, at least $200 will be needed for establishing the power system in Liberia. President Barmek Azerbaycan said, the company plans to take a decision on the issue till mid- January 2006.
