“With respect to Sangachal terminal electric supply, which you implement together with bp, I can tell you that the origin of this project also comes from our policy on renewables. We agreed with bp that bp would be a direct foreign investor to build a power plant, solar power plant in one of the liberated cities of Karabakh - Jabrayil city, with a capacity of 240 megawatt,” President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said at a meeting with heads of Germany’s leading companies in Berlin, APA reports.
“This production will be put into our energy system. At the same time, we will provide the Sangachal terminal with electricity and they will stop using gas. And this gas will be put into the pipeline, and it will come to Europe. So it's a win-win-win situation.We get the 240 megawatt solar plant. BP Sangachal terminal becomes carbon emission free and more efficient. The gas, which they use, will be exported to Europe, so, this project, which we consider to be very important with respect to energy efficiency,” the head of state noted.
