Continuation work on construction of the third power transmission line and Noravan substation in Armenia
The project of the construction of third line of power transmission in Armenia, including 270 km of 400 kV dual circuit line and also construction of Noravan 220/400 kV substation, is currently about 77% complete and we hope to be able to use all capacities by launching according to the project plan, showing the capabilities of Iranian export companies, by the possibility of importing 700 MW of electricity through this line to the country during peak consumption and solve a large part of the problem of electricity shortage next year.
At present, in the 220 and 400 kV sections of Noravan substation, equipment including current and voltage transformers, power switches and disconnectors have been installed. Also, the construction of cables duct in the 220 kV section of the substation has been completed, and in the 400 kV section, a 75% progress is underway, which will be completed in the next two weeks.
Currently, the construction of the control room and the wall of the buildings is underway, and the construction of the perimeter wall on the south side is underway with an 80% progress.

Hayek Harutyunyan, while expressing satisfaction with the progress of work in the substation section, emphasis to some technical points and also on speeding up the completion of construction operations, especially the wall around the substation yard.
It is worth mentioning that the drainage concreting operation of the 220 kV substation is being carried out at the appropriate speed by the hardworking personnel in order to complete it before the start of the rainy season and to avoid the damages caused by the accumulation of water in the southern part of the substation.
In the transmission line section, this visit was made twice in the area of Tower 641 and then in the area of Tower 653 (near the village of Pokhrut). Due to the sensitivity of this area and its location on the impassable route and the protected area, the construction operation must be completed and accelerated.
