Implementation of Armenian-Iranian project on construction of Meghri  HPP on Arax River may come across new problems

ArmInfo. The implementation  of the Armenian-Iranian project on construction of Meghri Hydropower  Plant on Arax river may come across new problems.   

According to iran.ru, Iranian lawmakers approved a bill on joint  construction of two HPPs with Azerbaijan.  The bill permits  construction of electric power plants near the River Arax in the  near-border area, in Marazad town of Iran and in Ordubad town of  Azerbaijan. 

In case the given project is implemented, the water resources may  become insufficient for Meghri HPP.  Earlier, Armenian Deputy  Minister of Energy and Natural Resources Areg Galstyan said that the  capacity of the project was reduced due to environmental problems  related to the decrease of water in the River Arax and increase of  water withdrawal by Turkey. Initially, it was planned to build two  plants (Meghri - Armenia, Karachilar - Iran) with a capacity of 130MW  each and an aggregate output of electricity of nearly 850 mln KW per  annum. Now, however, the matter concerns 100 MW. During the  investment payback period, the electric power generated at the  Armenian plant will be supplied to Iran. After the payback of the  capital investment, the electricity will become the property of  Armenia. 

To recall, the groundbreaking ceremony of Meghri HPP on the River  Arax took place on 8 Nov 2012. Initially, the construction of the HPP  worth $323 mln was expected to be over by early 2016. As many as  2,000 specialists and workers will be involved in various phases of  construction.
