Therefore, Environmental Protection plays an important role in the construction of the reservoir.

EVRASCON Corporation, which participated in the construction of one of the largest reservoirs, both in Azerbaijan and in Europe, the Jeyranbatan reservoir, could not but pay proper and necessary attention to the environmental protection of this project.

General description of the work performed:
