The new thermal power station, which opened in Yerevan at the end of November, will expand the possibilities of exporting electricity to Iran. This was stated by Deputy Minister of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure of Armenia Hakob Vardanyan. Technically, the new TPP power unit can supply electricity to Iran together with the existing power unit.

According to the Deputy Minister, Iran supplies gas to Armenia, which operates the Yerevan CHP and partially other heating stations. Speaking about the construction of international power transmission lines, Vardanyan noted that the Iran-Armenia line will be ready by the end of 2023. As for the construction of the new Armenia-Georgia line, its first stage has already been completed. The new lines will allow Armenia not only to export large volumes of electricity to Iran and Georgia, but also to transfer it in transit.
