Abkhazia's State-Owned Power Company, Chernomorenergo, Names Timur Dzhindzholia as General Director

SUKHUM / AQW'A ― The Ministry of Economy of Abkhazia has announced the appointment of Timur Dzhindzholia as the new General Director of Chernomorenergo, the state-owned power distribution company.

Dzhindzholia steps in following the resignation of interim Director General Ramin Zingishvili, who previously served as the Deputy General Director for Distribution Networks.

Timur Dzhindzholia has been actively involved in the electric power industry since 1996, and since 2007, he has held the position of head at the Sukhum Department of Electrical Structures.

Chernomorenergo has faced multiple leadership changes in recent months. Zurab Bagapsh had been serving as the Acting General Director since October 17, 2022, before stepping down from the role at his own request, making way for Zingishvili's brief tenure. The Ministry emphasized that Zingishvili's resignation was not connected to the leasing issue of differential HPP No. 2.

Abkhazia is currently grappling with electricity shortages, prompting the Ministry of Economics, the State Property Committee, and Chernomorenergo to prioritize the restoration of drop stations No. 1, No. 2, and No. 3. The entities are also evaluating the state of HPP No. 2, as part of their efforts to address the electricity crisis.

In addition, a draft lease agreement for HPP No. 2 is being developed, which stipulates provisions to maintain the facility under state ownership, as well as conditions for its reconstruction, operation, and the allocation of a portion of the generated electricity to the energy system of Abkhazia.
