Project Title

Aras Hydro Power Plant - Gharachilar 

Field of Activity

Water and Energy Generation 

Project description

Aras Hydropower Plant designed to utilize the Aras River potential for generating Hydroelectric energy at Iran-Armenia border. The river inflow at this location is about 4.9 billion cubic meters per annum. And the difference in elevation between the two meeting points of Iran-Nakhjavan-Armenia and Iran-Azerbaijan-Armenia borderlines is about 205 meter. on the other hand, the presence of Aras Reservoir Dam on the upstream (at Iran-Nakhjavan border) has made a major part of the water flow at the project site is regulated that makes it reasonable to consider this power plant a run-of-river facility. Based on the feasibility investigations, the installed capacity of the plant is about 2x65 MW for each country who will take a share of about 1700 GWH of the generated energy per annum. Run-of-river power plant in the Armenian territory named Megri Power Plant and in Iranian territory named Gharachilar Power Plant.
