Sukhumi Hydro Power Plant is a small HPP that is situated on the West Humista river in Sukhumi district of Abkhazia. The installed capacity of HPP is 21 MW (3 hydro units by 7 MW each) and the design head of 215 metres. Constructively, Sukhumi HPP is a derivation station that works on transferring the part of the flow of East Humista in West Humista that is located parallelly but on the lower level.
Due to Sukhumi HPP being a private power plant, students have a unique opportunity to thoroughly examine the object. The work practice started on 21 June. The students could learn about the basic waterworks units of the HPP, main and supplementary equipment of the station, technical documents etc. and to collect materials for the goals set by the University.
