Turkmen eastern region gets power grid
Jun 19, 2008 - BBC Monitoring
An important step has been made to establish a unified
power supply grid in Lebap [eastern Turkmenistan], a region
with huge mineral resources and industrial potential. Among
recently constructed and commissioned facilities there are:
the 220/110/35-kV Farap transformer substation and two overhead
high-voltage transmission lines Farap-Samandepe and Samandepe-Yasyldepe
both are fed from this substation.
Apart from this, the Yasyldepe transformer substation and
the 110-kV Yasyldepe-Burdalyk power transmission line have
also been commissioned there.
All these facilities are important links of a big industrial
centre being constructed there Yasyldepe gas processing
complex [close to border with Uzbekistan]. The recently
modernized 110/10-kV Burdalyk transformer substation is
also contributing to the region's energy capacity.
The total cost of all facilities built by subdivisions
of Turkmenenergo [Turkmen power] state concern amounts to
46.6bn manats [some 3.2m dollars].
[Passage omitted: more power transmission lines will be
built there by 2020]
