Black Sea Energy Transmission System
The project foresees a rehabilitation and expansion of the existing transmission system. This includes the construction of a new 500/400 kV substation with a back-to-back facility at the border with Turkey, the construction of 315 km of a new transmission line allowing the link between the power supply systems of the Southern Caucasus countries with Turkey and Europe, and the adaption of two further substations in Georgia. The objective is to stabilise the domestic power supply systems and reduce transmission losses, and also make the region independent from single supply sources.
