Iran and Turkey have started trading electricity for a first time, says an Iranian Energy Ministry official, amid Iran’s plans to launch power exports to European countries via the Turkish grid.

A spokesman of Iran’s state electricity company Tavanir said on Wednesday that Iran and Turkey had started trading 600 megawatts (MW) of electricity after successfully synchronizing their power grids.

Mostafa Rajabi said electricity trading between Iran and Turkey uses a modern technology that will protect electricity transfer between the two countries from frequency disruptions.

Rajabi said under the power trading arrangement between Iran and Turkey, each side will supply electricity to the partner power grid for 3.5 days of the week, adding that the amount of electricity traded could increase if the current pilot project is successful.
