Project description

The hydropower plant, Mestiachala 2, is located in the Svaneti region, on the Mestiachala River.
The plant will have two intakes, one at the Mestiachala River and a second one at the Chalaati River, a tributary on the right side. Both are approximately 250 m upstream of the confluence of both rivers and are feeding the water into a common basin between both river beds. This basin works as a sand trap and as storage at the same time. Mestiachala 2 is part of a hydropower cascade.

The project is currently under construction, with commissioning set for 2018.
