The Mestiatchala 1 Hydropower Plant (HPP) site is located on a right-bank tributary of the Mulkhura River, located about 8.5-11 km upstream from the developed area of Mestia district of northern Georgia’s Samegrelo-Upper (Zemo) Svaneti Region. The Mestiatchala River watershed lies on the south slope of the Greater Caucasus Mountain Range. The river is steep, providing a very good opportunity to develop a project that is expected to be quite financially attractive.

Pre-feasibility studies include following topics: Project area social characteristics, baseline conditions, geology  hydropower project description, power and energy studies , project cost estimation and constrution schedule.
