According to ADB website, ADB is helping Armenia further overhaul its Soviet-era power network, including expanding its supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system, and upgrading two 220 kilovolt substations at Agarak 2 and Shinuhayr. The project will reduce power losses, boost capacity, and improve the quality and reliability of power supplies to both urban and rural customers. This project is associated with closed ADB project: Power Transmission Rehabilitation Project (ADB-46416-001).
The project will include three main components:
1. Expansion of supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system
2. Rehabilitation of four existing 220/110-kilovolt (kV) substation
3. Support for institutional development, capacity building, and project management.
The project will help increase the electricity supply to urban and rural consumers to support inclusive and sustainable economic development.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main.
