Dec 4, 2008 - BBC Monitoring

The Uzbekenergo [Uzbek energy] state joint stock company has started the construction of a 500-kV high-voltage power transmission line Guzor-Surxon.

The 93m-dollar power line will make it possible to increase export of Uzbek electricity to Afghanistan, the press service of the Uzbek energy company told a Regnum news agency correspondent. The source said that in October 2008, the Islamic Development Bank gave the company a 42m-dollar loan that will be spent on buying necessary equipment. The Uzbekenergo state joint stock company announced a tender for the procurement of equipment needed for the construction of the high-voltage power line and reconstruction of two substations.
