By Tamilla Mammadova – Trend:
A condensation power plant, equipped with the latest Siemens turbine generator was opened in Georgian Rustavi city, Trend reports via the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia.
The opening ceremony was attended by the Minister of Economy Natia Turnava, Minister of the Environment and Agriculture Levan Davitashvili as well as representatives of Siemens.
According to the Ministry of Economy, the project was initiated in February 2018.
The total cost of the project was $5.5 million. The project was fully funded at the expense of Rustavi Azot company (specializes in the production of mineral fertilizers, ammonia, sodium cyanide, nitric acid, ammonia water and other products).
The steam turbine generator will generate electricity with the help of steam, which was pumped out in the technological process and has not yet been used. In addition, the power plant provides 20 percent of all electricity needed for the production of Rustavi, which allows the company to buy 20 percent less electricity in the wholesale market.
