Iran-Armenia gas pipeline

The company implemented a large, unique and technically complicated project, the Iran-Armenia gas pipeline construction, which allows to expand the resource base of natural gas supply and create the second technological entrance to the Republic of Armenia.

In order to deliver the contractual volume of the Iranian gas to the central regions of Armenia it had been necessary to expand the existing gas transportation system towards the southern direction of the country.

For this purpose, by the company  "ArmRosGazprom" there was constructed a new gas pipeline of 720 mm diameter and of about 190 km of total length and were been restored the system's linear segments of 60 km total length.

The 3 years of pipeline construction works were carried out in difficult climatic conditions: the segment of the pipeline passes in altitude about 3000 meters above the sea level.

 

The construction completion and modernization of the 5th unit of Hrazdan TPP 

"Hrazdan 5" is a unique institution with the newest technological solutions not only in Armenia, but also in the all gas and energy sector of the region.

A new method for the production of electric power is applied here, combining the steam turbine and gas turbine technologies.  

The operation of the unit provides the participation in electricity production in the countrie's internal market and to create and develop programs in the export markets direction.
