Turkey to Build Power Plant in Georgia

Turkish company EMCT Pazarlama Insaat Taahhut Ticaret will build a hydropower station on the Gubazeuli River in the Guria region in western Georgia, the Georgian Energy Ministry said last week.

A memorandum on the construction of the Gubazeuli-6 power plant with a capacity of 3.1 megawatts — which is in the list of planned small and midsized hydropower plants as part of the government's Renewable Energy program — was signed Aug. 26 by Energy Minister Alexander Khetaguri and an EMCT representative, Ekber Topal.

The project will cost $4.5 million, and the plant will be launched in January 2014, according to the memorandum.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
