Turkmenistan Begins Electricity Supplies to Tajikistan

Dec 3, 2007 - BBC Monitoring - Central Asia

The supply of Turkmen electricity to Tajikistan has eventually started, although in small amounts - 2- 2.5m kWh per day and night, the Barq-i Tojik OJSHC [open joint- stock holding company] has told Asia-Plus.

The source said over the past several weeks, electricity from Turkmenistan was being transited via the 220-KV Chardzhou (Turkmenistan)-Qorakol (Uzbekistan) power transmission line, and from there to Tajikistan through the existing electricity lines between Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.

Meanwhile, repair works at the Uzbek section of the 500-KV power transmission line, through which the transit of Turkmen electricity to Tajikistan - up to 10m kWh per day and night - should have been carried out, are currently continuing, the source in the Tajik energy holding said. In accordance with an agreement, 1.2bn kWh of Turkmen electricity should be supplied to the country during this winter, the source added.

[Passage omitted: starting from January 2008, Tajikistan will receive 600m kWh of electricity from Uzbekistan - known details]
