ASHGABAT – Afghanistan will import 1.8 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity from Turkmenistan in 2024, according to a contract signed in Ashgabat with Afghanistan’s biggest energy company, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat or DABS.

“DABS CEO Muhammad Hanif Hamza and his delegation concluded a major agreement on the supply of Turkmen electricity in 2024 during a two-day visit to Turkmenistan. The deal is for the supply of up to 1.8 billion kWh of electricity through four lines: Andkhoy, Akina, Badgis, and Turgundi-Herat,” the News Central Asia (nCa) publication said, quoting DABS.

During the meetings in Ashgabat, Muhammad Hanif Hamza confirmed that Afghanistan is committed to completing the construction of a 500 kW transmission line between Shebergan and Argandi, which will increase electricity imports from Turkmenistan.
