Construction of a 400 kV high-voltage power transmission line between Georgia and Armenia is to begin in 2014. The German bank KfW will provide a €75 million loan and a €2 million grant to finance the project.
The new line will link the Marneuli substation with the Hrazdan thermal power plant. It will increase the electricity flow between the two countries threefold.
Currently, there are three power transmission lines operating between Georgia and Armenia. These are: Alaverdi-2 (220 kV), Lalvari (110 kV) and Ashotsk (110 kV), although the latter only operates at a capacity of 35 kV due to the lack of a suitably powerful substation on the Georgian side in Akhalkalaki.
