The adviser to Iran's energy minister spoke about the readiness to connect the national energy system to the power grids of the SCO member states. The project is planned to be implemented through Turkmenistan and Tajikistan.
To implement the project, it is necessary to build the 3rd transmission line between Turkmenistan and Iran. To date, Iran has carried out work on the laying of power lines to Ashgabat.
With the beginning of the construction of the transmission line from the Turkmen side, its capacity should increase by 200%. The advisor stressed that the implementation of the project would enable Iran to export electricity from the eastern coast of the Caspian Sea.
