Azerbaijan could ensure its security and electricity in the short term and turned from importer to exporter of
electricity. Works to upgrade the power grid Nakhchyvan allowed to provide electric power, but also provided an
opportunity to start exporting electricity to Turkey, Azerbaijani Industry and Energy Minister Natik Aliyev
Implementation of the Electric Power Project North-South (synchronizing electrical Russia, Azerbaijan and Iran) will significantly increase the export of electricity to Iran, he said.
"Through this project, Azerbaijan has already made big works. In particular, built a high-voltage electricity
transmission line Imishli-Parsabad [Azerbaijan-Iran]. Also, transformer stations were built, and I think that soon
they will be put into operation," Aliyev said.
There is also ongoing on the construction of power lines, Jasper Derbent (Russia-Azerbaijan), the minister said.
