A pair of small hydropower projects have been commissioned within the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic.

Called Arpachay 1 and 2, the hydroelectric plants have output capacities of 20.5 MW and 1.4 MW, respectively.

Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev earlier this year, who approved financing for the projects earlier this year, put the plants into service during a ceremony earlier this week.

HydroWorld.com reported this past March that the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) was working to create a sustainable energy program for the region that includes Azerbaijan.

EBRD said at that time that it was scaling up its energy efficiency and renewable energy financing in Azerbaijan by establishing a new Caucasus Sustainable Energy Financing Facility called CEEP II.
