By Huseyn Hasanov – Trend:
Turkmenistan supplies electricity to Afghanistan on preferential terms and is working on increasing its export to the country, the ‘Neutral Turkmenistan’ newspaper reported.
Turkmenistan delivers electricity to Afghanistan via the Imamnazar-Andkhoy power transmission line with the capacity of 300 million kilowatt hours and Serhetabat-Herat-Toraghundi power transmission line with the capacity of 200 million kilowatt hours.
The newspaper said that Turkmenistan has adopted a relevant concept in order to ensure the comprehensive modernization and development of its electricity sphere and increase its capacity.
The implementation of this concept has created an opportunity to increase the volume of electricity exported to Afghanistan through the Serhetabat-Herat-Toraghundi route from 200 million kilowatt hours to 400 million kilowatt hours.
