Azerbaijani and Iranian national energy departments - Azerenergy and Tavanir agreed upon enhancement of bilateral cooperation and mutual relationship in Baku.

The energy exchange is planned to reach 700 megawatts and experts think this will allow providing 150 megawatts to Nakhchivan AR and even 400 megawatts in winter.

The project includes 330 KV Alibayramli-Imishli, second Imishli-Parsabad, 222 KV Alibayramli-Salyan, Salyan-Masalli, Masalli-Astara power lines as well as construction of Salyan power substation, expansion of 4 substations. Total power supply line is 350km in length.
