Indian company commissions substations in Afghanistan

The Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (Bhel), an Indian state-owned company, has commissioned two substations in Charikaar, around 60kms from Kabul and Doshi, around 150kms from Kabul.

The two, 220/20kV substations were inaugurated by Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah and Indian Ambassador to Kabul, Amar Sinha on Wednesday.

“Both the substations are part of the 220 kV Pul-e-Khumri – Kabul transmission system and will provide power to Charikar and Doshi sites and their neighboring areas,” said a statement from Bhel.

Investing over USD 2bn in various sectors, India has been a major contributor to Afghanistan’s reconstruction process.

Indian Prime Minister recently inaugurated the new Afghan Parliament built by India in Kabul.

The edifice was constructed at a total cost of USD 90mn.

The neighboring country has also undertaken the reconstruction project of Salma dam in Herat. The Indian cabinet recently approved a revised cost of USD 268,050,296 for the project.
