Completed construction work, installation of power plants, switchgear and commissioning work at the new gas turbine power plant in Lebap, which is being prepared for launch by the Japanese company Sumitomo Corporation. This was reported by “Turkmenistan: Golden Age”.
Each of the three Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems gas turbines has a capacity of 144 MW.
The launch of the power plant will be another step towards ensuring that the total annual volume of electricity produced in Turkmenistan will become 33 billion kilowatt-hours over the next 7 years.
The launch of a new hydroelectric power station with a capacity of 432 MW will create the necessary technical conditions for uninterrupted power supply to the eastern region of the country, create new jobs, and also become the main source of electricity that will be exported abroad.
