Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend S.Aliyev / Azerenerji, an energy company of Azerbaijan are discussing with Turkey and Georgia the opportunity to construct electricity transmission lines (ETL) for the establishment of a unified power system Azerbaijan-Georgia. The major part of work will fall namely in the territories of Georgia and Turkey.
Some 40% of the ETLs, which will be covered under the project, will be repaired for the construction of a 500kW-ETL, which is to connect Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey. Georgia needs to repair approximately 90% of its electricity transmission lines. This data was obtained during monitoring of the transmission lines.
