Joint Wind Farm to be Inaugurated on Afghanistan-Iran Border

Head of Iran’s Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Organization (SATBA) has announced the inauguration of a huge wind farm project on the border of Iran and Afghanistan in near future, IRNA reported.

According to Mohammad Satakin, 25-megawatt (MW) capacity of the joint project, which is considered one of the biggest wind farms in the world, will be put into operation by the end of the current Iranian calendar year (March 20) while another 25-MW capacity is scheduled to be inaugurated in early next year.

The construction of this 50-megawatt power plant has led to the development of the region’s infrastructure such as road construction, the construction of high-voltage electricity lines, substations, as well as telecommunication and Internet infrastructures, Satakin said.

Referring to the eagerness of new investors for the construction of other wind projects in the region, he added: “In addition to this project, another 50-MW wind farm project is under construction using 4.2-MW turbines, part of which will be completed by the end of this year and the other part will be constructed in early next year.
