220kV OHL Jvari – Khorga and 500kV OHL looping in of Kavkasioni


220kV OHL Jvari-Khorga connection project comprises the construction of a 220kV double circuit transmission line (approximately 60 km) – from SS Jvari to SS Khorga - and approximately 8km long double circuit 500kV overhead line as a tie-in of the 500kV transmission line Kavkasioni. The project is being implemented by Jyoti Structures Limited, India. Presently, the construction works are underway. Implementation of the project will facilitate the transfer of electricity from the hydropower plants located in north-west part of the country in the direction of west Georgia, to Poti free industrial zone and to Turkey, and at the same time enable increase of power supply to east Georgia. In order to support the Project, a Supervision Consultancy Contract was signed with the German company Fichtner.
