A quadrilateral agreement has been reached, as a result of which, Hungary will be able to import green electricity from Azerbaijan through Georgia and Romania via a new pipeline in the future, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó announced on Saturday in Bucharest.
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade statement, Hungary will be able to import green electricity from the South Caucasus country thanks to the wind power investments to be carried out on the Caspian Sea and the construction of a pipeline with a total capacity of 3 gigawatts.
He emphasized that the undersea part of the pipeline will be 1,195 km long, which would be considered a new world record.
