According to the report of Sunir Company’s Public Relations, during the first day of the visit of the government delegation, in a ceremony attended by Dr. Ibrahim Raisi, Dr. Ali Akbar Mehrabian and Dr. Mansur Saeedi, CEO of Sunir Company, as well as Pakistani officials, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Khurram Dastgir Khan, Federal Minister for Power of Pakistan and Managing Director of NTDC Company, 220 KV power transmission line from Iran to Gwadar, Pakistan was inaugurated.
Considering the urgent need of Pakistan to supply electricity to different areas from the border of Iran to the city of Gwadar, the contract addendum of the first part of the construction project of 220 kV transmission line with a length of 29 kilometers and Gwadar substation was signed on 31/03/1401 in Sunir company headquarters with the presence of representatives Ministry of Energy of Pakistan and NTDC and CPPA.
Considering the project being a national project of high importance, Sunir started all implementation activities seriously and despite problems such as insecurity on the site and numerous floods in the region, the project was fully implemented with a length of 30 kilometers of Double Circuit transmission line and the existing tower in Iran was connected to the tower of a transmission line in Pakistan. Finally, with the efforts of Sunir Company, after 5 months of day and night operations, on the second of March 1401, the voltage level of 132 kV (with the voltage level capacity of 220 kV) was energized with the presence of the representatives of the Ministry of Energy, Tavanir Company and Sunir Company.
It is hoped that with the agreement of the two governments of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Pakistan, the implementation activities of the second part of the project, which includes 45 kilometers of transmission line and GIS substation, will start soon so that electricity can be exported from Iran to Pakistan using full capacity of two circuits. It is also hoped that with the construction of new transmission lines and the development of Pakistan’s internal power grid in the future, the surplus electricity produced in Pakistan will be exported through the transmission lines to enter the Iranian grid or be transited to neighboring countries.
