Construction of the first wind power plant in Georgia has been finalized. Wind power plant of modern standards functioning at the expense of alternative power sources. Based on its specifications and characteristics, the power plant is among the world’s best plants and is worth 34 million USD.
This power plant will enable us to meet part of the countrywide electricity demands during the wintertime at the expense of the wind energy. Most importantly, this is the most economic, ecologic and safe source of energy. Georgia has alternative energy resources, including an access to the wind and sun energy. I believe that proper utilization of these resources will give a further impetus to the development of the energy sector of our country.
“Today is a clear indication of the fact that Georgia is becoming a part of a civilized world and through implementation of this project we are administering all the novelties making Georgia a truly developed country with a leading technologies,” – Giorgi Kvirikashvili noted in his speech.
The power plant “Kartli” was constructed by the subsidiary of “Georgian Energy Development Fund” and “Oil and Gas Company of Georgia” – “Kartli Wind Power Plant, ltd”. The installed capacity of wind power plant is 20.7 MW. It generates 88 million kWh of electricity. The wind power plant includes six aggregates, capacity of each of them is 3.45 MW.
Kartli Wind Power Plant will foster the strategy of the Government that seeks to develop generation of low emissions and to meet part of the countrywide electricity demands during the wintertime at the expense of the wind energy.
