Statkraft to begin operations at hydropower plant in Albania – Renewable Energy World

Renewable energy generating company Statkraft announced this week that its Moglice hydropower plant in Albania will began commercial operations, delivering renewable power to the Albanian grid.

Moglice is the largest of the
two hydropower plants in the Devoll hydropower project, which aims to generate
450 GWh annually. Combined with the Banja hydropower plant, Statkraft’s
hydropower production in the Devoll valley will reach 700 GWh per year,
according to the company.

The project has also
contributed to developments in the Devoll valley through new infrastructure,
livelihood support and social development.

The power plant was opened yesterday,
with a site visit by Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama and Minister of
Infrastructure and Energy, Belinda Balluku.

Moglice hydropower plant is
comprised of a 167-meter high asphalt-core rock-filled dam, a 10.7 km long
headrace tunnel, an underground powerhouse with two main generators of 91.5 MW
each and a 1-MW eco-flow unit.

“The country (Albania) is
developing to be the electricity hub of the region, opening up to further
opportunities,” says Christian Rynning-Tønnesen, CEO of Statkraft.
