An official in charge of the Iran-Turkmenistan electricity line told that construction of the line will cost about 210 bn rials.
Khalil Laleh added that implementation of the project has started since early the current Iranian calendar year (started March 20, 2004) and is still underway.

Laleh stated that the line will be 210 km long and its construction will take three years to be completed in 2007.
"The project has so far progressed 15 %," he said.
Iran and Turkmenistan are currently exchanging electricity through power grid in Mazandaran province. Recently, the Turkmen president has signed a contract with the Turkish energy minister to export 600 mm kWh electricity per year to Turkey.
