The Georgian Prime Minister, Irakli Garibashvili, was on hand to open the country’s first combined cycle thermal power plant in the town of Gardabani, near Tbilisi yesterday.
The Prime Minister highlighted that the construction of the 237 MW plant cost $231m and was funded by the Oil and Gas Corporation and the Partnership Fund. He said the power plant will greatly benefit the country and contribute to Georgia‘s energy security and independence.
The plant is capable of generating nearly double the capacity of other gas-fired power plants in Georgia.
“This plant will ensure steady energy supply in the shortest possible terms. Construction of the plant started in January last year and was completed three months ahead of schedule,” Garibashvili said.
