Iran to Increase Power Supply to Pakistan

"Due to Pakistan's dire need to electricity, Iran can supply part of its power surplus to Pakistan," Namjou stated, adding that Iran has 10,000MW electricity surplus during season.

He underlined Iran's preparedness to export electricity to Pakistan once the needed financial resources and the necessary transmission lines are prepared.

The minister said that Iran is constructing a transmission line along its borders with Pakistan to supply 230kw of electricity to the neighboring state, and called on the Pakistani side to take the necessary measures to import Iran's power supply.

In 2008, Iran agreed to export 1,100 megawatt of electricity to Pakistan to help it overcome shortages in areas bordering Iran, especially in Gwadar.

Tehran has suggested establishment of joint venture companies in water and electricity sectors between Iran and Pakistan, and expressed its desire to have a sizable investment in hydroelectric plants in Pakistan.
