Our newest project is Machakhela HEPP, the intake for which is supposed to be located on the Machakhela river in Machakhlist Tskali, 40 km from Batumi, in the Khelvachauri District of the Adjara Autonomous Republic. Standing outside of the National Park there are no overlapping zones or confusion of usage rights.
Our preliminary analysis indicates that it will have an installed capacity of 25-28 MW and an output of 135-147 GW per hour, but final base date will be established via upcoming geo-engineering studies, hydraulic calculations, and other option analysis studies. Hydrology studies have all been completed as well as pre-feasibility geological and topographic surveys, and mapping.
A memorandum of understanding with the Georgian government, ESCO and EnergoTrans has been signed to ensure the provision of development rights, preliminary sales structure and capacity allocation rights in the interconnection transmission line to Turkey for the purposes of guaranteed export power off-take transactions.
