Construction of the second stage of the ring energy system started in Turkmenistan

In Turkmenistan, the construction of the second stage of the ring power system, carried out by contractors of Turkmenenergogurlushyk State Company, has started. Its goal is to connect the power grids of the Balkan and Dashoguz provinces, thereby ensuring reliable power supply to these regions of the country. The 500 line starting from the Balkan substation and running towards Dashoguz has a length of over 560 km. On this route, reinforced concrete foundations will be prepared and the supports of the new transmission line will be installed. A total of 1,446 such poles are planned to be installed.

The general contractor for the construction of the project also involved business entities. Along with the construction of the transmission line, it is also planned to install the accompanying equipment and systems.

The project is being implemented with funds provided for its implementation by the Asian Development Bank. The State Electricity Corporation "Turkmenenergo" purchased the equipment, vehicles and construction materials required for the construction of high-voltage power transmission lines and substations. They were used during the construction of the first stage of the ring power system that connected Ashgabat with Balkanabat.

Completion of the Turkmen ring energy system, which will connect Akhal with Balkan and Dashoguz, is scheduled for 2023. The implementation of the large-scale project, which has been approved by the President of Turkmenistan, will help to increase power generation, improve the quality of power supply and improve the social and living conditions of Turkmenistan citizens. It will also help to increase the export potential of the industry. Thanks to the ring structure, the provinces and Ashgabat will be able to make mutual backup between their energy systems. With permanent reserves, power engineers will be able to repair and improve power units of power substations and power transmission lines without harming consumers.
