Clean Energy Group Georgia (CEGG) LLC has opened information centers in the Namakhvani Hydropower Plant (HPP) cascade construction area.
CEGG employees are using these information centers to provide stakeholders with comprehensive information about the project. Local residents visit these centers on a daily basis for individual and group meetings with company representatives. They are interested to find out if their houses are within the construction area and learn about compensation terms, the construction start date, and employment opportunities.
The Namakhvani HPP cascade, a crucially important hydropower project for Georgia’s energy system with an installed capacity of 400 MW, will be under construction for 36 months. The project represents a USD 750 million investment and will affect the Tskaltubo and Tsageri municipalities. The Namakhvani HPP will be built with the most up-to-date technologies by an experienced team of Georgian and international professionals. The project will be implemented in accordance with the environmental and social standards established by the international institutions financing the project. Construction of the Namakhvani HPP will assist the long-term development of the region and improve the livelihoods of the population living within the project area.
At this point, there are two information centers in the Namakhvani HPP construction area. These are located in the villages of Mekvena and Tvishi. In upcoming weeks, another information center will be opened in the village of Opurchkheti.
