USACE set to begin electricity improvement project in Helmand province

Aging electric transformers, like this one in Helmand province, will be replaced as part of a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers construction project set to begin in mid-October. The project, when complete, will enable Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat, Afghanistan’s electrical utility company, to transmit more consistent and reliable electricity with minimal outages.
