In Poti, at the Hydrographic Service of Georgia, the ceremony of the handover of the hydrographic catamaran by the Republic of Korea to Georgia and the presentation of the postage stamp “Georgian Maritime Lighthouses” issued by the “Georgia Post” were held.

Deputy Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development Guram Guramishvili attended the event. In his speech, he noted that Georgia has a long history of seafaring, and the depiction of the biggest symbols of this field – lighthouses – on the stamp issued by the Post Office of Georgia is proof of that.

“It is symbolic that the stamp presentation is held near the Poti lighthouse, which has been in continuous operation since 1864. The stamp also features the lighthouses of Sukhumi and Batumi, with which we wanted to emphasize the maritime history of Georgia.



However, today we also celebrate one of the important results of the fruitful cooperation between Georgia and the Republic of Korea – we are talking about a hydrographic catamaran equipped with modern technologies, which was made in Korea and handed over to the Georgian side.

The catamaran is equipped with a modern multi-beam echo sounder, which measures sea depths with high accuracy, which is a necessary component for creating navigation maps and is the main guarantor of navigation safety.

On the initiative of the South Korean government, a project to introduce oceanographic infrastructure in Georgia is underway from December 2020.

Within the framework of the project, the Korean side provided technical support to the hydrography of Georgia, the ports of Georgia were equipped with expensive oceanographic equipment, joint studies were also conducted, and the staff of the Hydrographic Service of Georgia were trained in the Oceanographic Agency of the Republic of Korea.
