USAID funds thermal power projects in Jawzjan province

Work on a thermal power project that costs USD 200mn has officially begun in Jawzjan province, said officials of the Jawzjan province.

Funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the project will generate electricity to five provinces.

“The preliminary works of the project have started. The project will produce electricity for Jawzjan, Sar-e-Pul, Faryab, Balkh and Samangan provinces through installation of natural gas turbines having a capacity of 200-MW electricity.

It is worthwhile to mention that ex-US envoy Dr. Zalmai Khalilzad had pledged a few years ago that thermal power projects run by natural gas would be implemented in Samangan province. However, the projects were never  executed until now for unknown reasons.
