The project is part of a larger framework agreement signed between Masdar and GEDF in 2021 to develop renewable energy capacity in Georgia.

The JDA was signed by Mohamed Jameel Al-Ramahi, Chief Executive Officer of Masdar, and Giorgi Chikovani, CEO of the GEDF

The agreement was signed in the presence of Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al-Zeyoudi, Minister of State for Foreign Trade, and Natela Turnava, Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development for Georgia, in a ceremony at the Leadership Pavilion at Dubai Expo.
