One of the most important projects, which is included in 2019-2029, 2020-2030 & 2021-2031 development plan of Georgian electric system and which should be implemented by the JSC UES “SAKRUSENERGO” is the construction of new double chain 330KW electric transmission line 1,2 GARDABANI. Above mentioned line will substitute current, 330 single chain transmission line, which connects Georgian and Azeri substations (GARDABANI-500 and AGSTAFA).
All preparatory works, including elaboration of architectural project, expenses documents, as well as maintaining the right to use land, the site of the towers and the construction permit have been already done. The subsequent agreement was signed with the construction company “ENERGONI”. On the construction site the company already laid the foundation for twelve towers, pre-ordered electric wires and wired fittings. All preparatory works are done by the supervision of archeological development fund and the type A inspection body.
According to the task given by the Ministry of Economy & Sustainable Development, JSC UES “SAKRUSENERGO” switched electric towers N63 and N64 to double chain towers N158 and ensured the connection of optical fiber wires in the border area.
According to the tripartite agreement of Georgian state electro system, JSC UES SAKRUSENERGO and Azerbaijan state the completion of construction is planned by the end of the year 2021.
The new transmission line 1,2 GARDABANI will dramatically raise the level of safety and energy independence of Georgia as well as will increase the reliability of operating in parallel mode between Georgian, Azeri and Russian energy systems.
