Natia Turnava: Nenskra HPP Project will Ensure Georgian Energy Security

Nenskra HPP project will make contribution to Georgia’s energy security, Natia Turnava, deputy head of Partnership Fund, told Business Course.

Under the agreement with the investor, after 35 years the HPP will be returned to the population of Georgia, she said.

“Nenskra HPP is of special importance for Georgian power system. First of all, it is a major project of 1bln USD. Secondly, Nenskra HPP will make its contribution to Georgian energy security. Today, hydro power is generated by onlyEnguri HPP. It is in good condition and it is rehabilitated time to time, but it was launched in 1980s and a part of it is located in the zone, which is not controlled by Georgian Authorities. This factor creates certain risks.
Therefore, projects like Nenskra HPP, Khudoni, Namakhvani, Oni will minimize these risks. These projects comprise high cascades and huge reservoirs. This was the Government order”, Natia Turnava said.
