Armenian invaders destroyed small hydropower plants in Azerbaijan's liberated territories, particularly in Kalbajar, Lachin, and other regions, dismantled their sound equipment, burned or blew up what they could not carry.

At present, none of these power plants is in good condition and they are all damaged, Report states, citing Azerenergy OJSC.

However, to achieve the goals set by President Ilham Aliyev to turn the liberated lands into a green energy zone, Azerenergy has repaired the 8-megawatt Gulabird Small Hydroelectric Power Station in the Lachin region.

Equipment damaged during the fighting – machine rooms, units, generators, control panels, and transformers – is replaced or renewed with new ones. Simultaneously, the pipe that transports water from the Hakari River to the hydraulic units, which exploded during the fighting, is rebuilt.

As a result of rapid work carried out on a rotating basis, Azerenergy plans to put into operation the Gulebird Small Hydroelectric Power Station soon. The company has attracted brigades, contractors, and specialists to these activities.

Initially, the 10 kV generator voltage at the Gulebird Small Hydroelectric Power Station will be transmitted to nearby military units in Lachin and Gubadli, and in the future, via a high voltage line to a new 110 kV s / s to be built in Gubadli.

World oil prices slightly decreased on January 25 morning, as the situation with the coronavirus and quarantine restrictions in the world raises concerns around the prospects for demand in crude, Report informs citing Prime agency.

As of 8:46 (Baku time), the price of April futures for North Sea Brent crude oil blend fell by 0.14 percent, to $55.17 per barrel, March futures – by 0.13 percent to $55.34. The price of March futures for WTI oil dropped by 0.08 percent to $52.23 per barrel.

"Signs of weakening oil demand are holding back the market," Reuters reports referring to analysts at ANZ, pointing to the quarantine situation in China, Hong Kong, and France.

Fears of tightening restrictions in connection with the coronavirus pandemic generally restrain expectations for oil demand. So, earlier, the media reported about the possibility of a new tightening of quarantine in France.

Besides, the markets are worried about the statistics on infections in China, which is the largest oil importer in the world.

Over the past day, 124 cases of coronavirus infection have been detected in the country. Since the middle of the month, the figure has exceeded 100 cases per day, which corresponds to July’s statistics. Investors fear the lunar New Year celebration in China could trigger a new surge in infections.
