Acquaintance with the Construction Works in the “Chirag-1” Small Hydroelectric Power Station

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev got acquainted with the progress of construction works of the “Chirag-1” Small Hydroelectric Power Station in the Kalbajar district on June 26.

Five small hydroelectric power stations with a total capacity of 27 megawatts are being built in the Kalbajar district in accordance with the “green energy” strategy. A total of nine hydropower units will operate at small hydroelectric power stations. 110 and 35 kV lines are being built to integrate the stations into the power system. These 5 stations, where most of the work is done, will be digitally integrated into the central SCADA Dispatch Management System.

About 100 million kilowatt-hours of environmentally friendly energy will be produced in the new power plants in Kalbajar annually.
