Azerbaijan, Baku / Trend , corr. S. Aliyev/ During his visit to Baku, Vasiliy Tarlev, Moldova's Prime-Minister, invited Azerbaijani power engineering speciaslists to participate in the construction of a heat power plant at a capacity of 400 Mwatt and bringing the two existing ones up to to 500 Mwatt , a source in the Press-Service of the "Azerenerji" JSC told Trend.

Moldova's electric power market is currently fuly liberalized and two thirds of the electric power distributing networks are privately-owned.

Moldova is expected to join the Unite European Energy Market by the end of 2007. That will certainly increase the interest to transit electric power via the Moldovian territory. The country has alaredy had a corresponding agreement with Greece on this issue.

Moldova is currently projecting electric energy transmission lines - Novodnestrovsk (Ukraine) - Beltsy (Moldova) (330 KWatt), and Beltsy- Suchava (Romania) (400 KWatt).
