New Power Supply Network for Mazar-e Sharif Benefits 20,000 Residents

Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS) in Balkh and the Afghan-German Cooperation signed the contract for upgrading a power supply network in the eastern part of Mazar-e Sharif. 

More than 20,000 residents in the neighborhood of Ali Chopan, Karte Wahadat, Bapa Padshah and Islam Abad will benefit from the improved energy infrastructure. 

The Afghan-German Cooperation’s Regional Infrastructure Development Fund (RIDF) supported DABS in identifying the need for this project and is funding the project’s implementation at a total cost of about AFN 160 million.

Mohammad Bashir Tawhidi, Deputy Governor of Balkh said: “Providing electricity is a vital service for our people. The area is densely populated and deprived of electricity, so we hope this important project will tackle this issue.”

The network that currently supplies the four neighborhoods in the viagra paypal east of Mazar city is out-dated, in disarray and beyond repair. A modern 20-kilovolt network of 2.5 kilometres in length will replace it. In addition, fourteen transformer substations with a total capacity of 5.04 megavolt-ampere and a 31 kilometre-long low-voltage network will be installed.
