President Ilham Aliyev viewed construction progress at “Jabrayil” Junction Substation VIDEO

Jabrayil, October 19, AZERTAC

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has viewed the construction progress at 330/110 kilovolt "Jabrayil" Junction Substation.

President of AzerEnergy Open Joint Stock Company Baba Rzayev informed the head of state of the “Jabrayil” Junction Substation.

The substation, the foundation of which was laid four months ago, has undergone the stages of ground disturbance, construction and installation. Canals for underground communications have been built, most of the work in the 330 and 110 kilovolt open distribution facilities has been completed, and the building of the Digital Management Center has been constructed.

Informing about the importance of the “Jabrayil” Junction Substation, Baba Rzayev said that it would ensure the supply of Karabakh and Eastern Zangazur regions with sustainable electricity, meet the demand of megaprojects to be implemented, connect into the Jabrayil-Nakhchivan-Aghri (Turkiye) substation and further to Europe through Turkiye's energy system. It will be possible to gain additional and more favorable access to energy markets, increase export opportunities, and connect the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic to the general energy system of Azerbaijan after many years. In particular, the construction of the 330-kilovolt Jabrayil substation is of tremendous importance for the transfer of energy produced in the Khudafarin and Giz Galasi hydropower plants, jointly built with Iran, as well as alternative and renewable energy sources, to the general energy system of Azerbaijan.

A 3-stage planning was carried out for the realization of the Azerbaijan-Turkiye-Europe cross-country international project, which is of international importance and is of interest to many countries. At the first stage, the 330 kilovolt Aghjabadi and Imishli substations, which are located closest to the territories liberated from occupation, will be expanded and completely reconstructed, and high-voltage electricity lines will be installed in Jabrayil, 132 kilometers from the Aghjabadi substation and 130 kilometers from the Imishli substation. Construction of a 330 kilovolt line from the Aghjabadi substation to Jabrayil has already started.

At the same time, most of the work has been done on the 330 kilovolt junction substation in Jabrayil.

At the second stage, in order to connect Nakhchivan with the main energy system of the country, a 255-kilometer double-circuit power transmission line will be built from the “Jabrayil” Junction Substation to the Autonomous Republic, crossing the Zangazur corridor, and a 330 kilovolt Nakhchivan substation will be built.

At the third stage, in order to create an energy hub of Azerbaijan, Nakhchivan, Turkiye and Europe, an additional 400 kilovolt converter substation will be built in accordance with European energy standards to convert 330 to 400 kilovolts in the territory of the Autonomous Republic close to the fraternal country, and a 230-kilometer double-circuit power transmission line will be built from Nakhchivan to Turkiye. This will be a project of great strategic importance.

A presentation on the export and transit prospects of Azerbaijan's energy system was shown at the event.
