generatorsWater and Energy Minister Mohammad Ismail Khan and his Iranian counterpart Majid Namjoo inaugurated the installation of two power generators in Kabul on Sunday.

The generators were purchased from Germany at a cost of USD 10mn by the Iranian government who gifted them to Afghanistan.

Each generator has the capacity of producing 50 megawatts of electricity per hour.

Minister Ismail Khan said the generators are to be used only in emergency situations.
