Azerbaijan to Commission New Power Plants in 2014

Azerbaijan will increase the number of its power plants this year.

A modular power station with a 16.5 megawatt capacity is planned to be commissioned in the southern region of Lerik in the first half of the year.

The power plant will be built to provide reliable and stable electricity for Azerbaijan's southern regions.

The construction work on ten small hydropower plants with a total capacity of 14.3 MW was conducted in the country in 2013. Moreover, the construction of two small hydropower plants in Goychay-1 (3.3 MW) and Ismayilli-1(1.6 MW) was completed.

The second combined-cycle plant (409 MW) is to be commissioned in the Shimal power plant in Azerbaijan in late 2014.

The construction of the second combined cycle plant is important for strengthening energy security in the Absheron peninsula. The electricity power station meets a quarter of the demand in Baku and Absheron at present.

The number will increase by 35-40 percent with the construction of the second block. The construction of the second unit is conducted under a contract concluded with the Japanese Toyo Engineering Company.
