The Turkish Electrical Transmission Company (TEİAŞ) will spend a total of TL 10.2 billion ($3.58 billion) on the construction of 14 electrical transmission lines by the end of 2019. According to data released by the Energy and Natural Resources Ministry, TEİAŞ is planning to include a total of 14 more electrical transmission lines in the system between 2016 and 2019.
While TEİAŞ's total investment allocation was approximately TL 2.3 billion ($807 million) in 2015, it is expected to reach TL 2.5 billion ($878 million) this year. The company will spend a total of TL 10.2 billion with an average allocation of TL 2.5 billion annually for the construction of 154 and 380 KW electrical transmission lines.
