Shusha electrification completed

Electrification of Shusha was completed, the Azerishig company that carried out work on the supply of electricity informed.

Thus, the Gevkhar Agha Mosque and the main streets of the city are now illuminated.

Yesterday, during his visit to Shusha, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev announced that electricity was supplied to the city. He told about a new high-voltage 110 kV power transmission line with a length of 75 km, which was built to illuminate and develop the city. "In a short period of time, these pillars were installed on a territory with a difficult relief. This suggests that life will return to Shusha in the near future," the Azerbaijani leader said.

According to the decree of Ilham Aliyev, the Azerishig company within the framework of the Azerishig in Karabakh project carried out urgent work on the power supply of strategic objects of state importance in the liberated territories.

In mid-December 2020, the head of the Azerbaijani state said that Shusha would be electrified in the shortest period of time. “Despite the mountainous, wooded area and difficult terrain, the employees of Azerishig OJSC work selflessly in snowy and frosty weather. Within the framework of the project, the sites are cleared of mines, then work is underway to create power lines. Shortly, the city of Shusha will be provided with electricity from the Shukurbeyli substation,” the President added.
