Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian says Iran is willing to increase power exports to Afghanistan and also send experienced engineers to help rehabilitate that country’s broken power infrastructure.
“The contract to sell power (close to 200,000 kilowatts per day) to neighboring state has been renewed for one more year, but it accounts for a very small share of the country’s growing demand,” the minister was quoted as saying by ISNA.
Iran and Afghan officials recently signed MoUs for expanding cooperation in the power sector. One project to build a 220 kilovolt power transmission line for Nimruz Province in southwest Afghanistan will commence soon.
