Turkmenistan starts producing LED bulbs

ASHGABAT (TCA) — Production of LED (light-emitting diode) bulbs has been established in Turkmenistan by Aydyn Gijeler company with the support of the Ministry of Industry and the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs of Turkmenistan, the government’s Turkmenistan: the Golden Age Online Newspaper reported on May 3.

Aydyn Gijeler lighting appliances enterprise is one of the first to be established under the Governmental program aimed at formation of a competitive high technological, environmentally friendly electronic and electro-technical industry and production of goods oriented for internal and foreign markets.

It has been a few months since the first enterprise of the Turkmen electronic industry was opened. At present, the enterprise employs more than 80 people and the manufacturing of bulbs is carried out in two shifts. At present, 17-24 thousands of 3–24 watt bulbs, which are equal to 40–240 watt incandescent light bulbs, are produced daily.

The production of Aydyn Gijeler is able to displace the filament lamps from the market as LED-light is one of the highly efficient and ecological sources of light. The advantages of LED-bulbs are their low energy consumption, prolonged life, which is 20,000 and more hours, thermal stability of the body and simplicity of installation, mechanical stability, and small sizes. Using local raw materials, the production cost of domestic LED-bulbs is much lower than that of foreign analogies.
