According to Sunir Company’s public relations, the countdown to the operation of Iran’s electricity transmission line to Gwadar, Pakistan has started.
Shahrooz Haji Ghorbani, the manager of the Pakistan project announced this news and said: With the efforts of Sunir Company as the executor of the 220 KV power transmission line project of Iran to Gwadar, Pakistan, the first part of the implementation of this project, which is 30 kilometers long, will be put into operation soon in spite of all the problems such as the occurrence of floods and the insecurity of the project implementation site.
He added that today, on the 24th of January, the operation of installing the tower number one of the Gwadar transmission line, which should be connected to the existing tower in the Iranian transmission line, will be completed, and then the wiring will be done from this tower to other towers. Moreover, in the coming days, with the deployment of workforce in Iran and obtaining the necessary permits from the Iranian authorities, the wiring operation of the tower number one of the Gwadar transmission line to the terminal tower of the respective transmission line in Iran will be carried out. It is hoped that despite the recent flood in Gwadar, Pakistan, and the closure of the access roads, the transmission line to Gwadar, Pakistan, will be completed by February 8 of this year, and it will be electrified and put into operation with the announcement of readiness by Tavanir, NTDC, and QESCO.
It is worth mentioning that with the electrification and operation of this line, while increasing Iran’s electricity export capacity to Pakistan, many problems in providing electricity to rural areas in Pakistan will be solved.
