Second Turbine of Iran-Made Power Plant in Tajikistan Goes on Stream
The second turbine of Tajikistan’s Sangtoudeh-II power plant project launched operation.

The first turbine of the power plant began operation on September 9, 2011 simultaneous with 20th anniversary of Tajikistan’s independence.

Tajik news agencies announced that electricity generated by the second turbine joined national grid last week after final tests, the Islamic republic news agency reported.

Sangtoudeh-II power plant has the capacity to produce 220 megawatts of electricity. It will increase Tajikistan's annual electricity output to 1bln kilowatt/hours.

Iran has contributed $180bln to construction of Sangtoudeh-II and Tajikistan's share is $40bln. The power plant's construction work began on September 5, 2011 at the presence of the Iranian and Tajik presidents.

Sangtoudeh-II is located 120 km Southeast of the Capital city of Dushanbe.
