The specific project – Helmand substations and electrical transmission lines – is a critical infrastructure project for the region and will increase the provision of electrical power from the Kajaki Dam power house on the Helmand River through the Helmand Province. It consists of the design and construction of three electrical substations and a 110kV switchyard; the repair of existing 110kV electrical transmission lines; and construction of two 20kV transmission lines.
