Iran ready to sync power grid with Russian and Azerbaijan

As one of the major players in West Asia’s energy market, Iran is now emerging as a major electricity hub in the region as the country is following a comprehensive plan for synchronizing its power grid with the neighboring countries.

Iran ready to sync power grid with Russian and Azerbaijan

Teheran, December 9 - Neftegaz.RU. Iranian Energy Minister Ali-Akbar Mehrabian has expressed the Iran’s readiness for joining the country’s electricity network to those of Azerbaijan and Russia, the local IRNA reported.

Making the remarks in a meeting with Azerbaijan’s Ambassador to Teheran Ali Alizadeh, Mehrabian emphasized Iran’s readiness for the development and continuation of electricity exchange between Iran and Azerbaijan, saying:
  • Studies have been conducted on electricity cooperation among Iran, Azerbaijan and Russia is ready to start synchronizing its electricity network with these countries
Referring to the long-standing relations between Iran and Azerbaijan in energy sectors, Mehrabian added:
  • Azerbaijan has had very good achievements in the energy sector in recent years, including gas extraction and electricity generation, which is admirable
Iraq was the 1st neighbor whose national electricity network was synchronized with the Iran’s power grid back in November 2019 and now the Energy Ministry is following a plan to connect the electricity networks of Russia and Azerbaijan with the Iranian grid.

Back in September, former Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian had announced that a research project for the synchronization of the electricity networks of Iran, Azerbaijan and Russia was underway by his ministry.

According to Ardakanian, there are 2 possible routes for the synchronization of Iran and Russia’s power grids, one of which is through Armenia and Georgia and the other is through Azerbaijan.

The route through Azerbaijan is currently more plausible and Iran is more inclined toward this country since, in a meeting with Azerbaijan’s Deputy PM Shahin Mustafayev back in February 2019, Ardakanian had announced that the 2 countries electricity networks would become synchronized.
