Statkraft starts operations at Moglice hydropower plant in Albania
(Tirana/Oslo, 22 June 2020) Statkraft’s Moglice hydropower plant in Albania has started commercial operations, delivering its renewable power to the Albanian grid.
Moglice is the largest of the two hydropower plants in the Devoll hydropower project and will generate approximately 450 GWh per year. Together with Banja hydropower plant, Statkraft’s hydropower production in the Devoll valley will reach 700 GWh per year, equal to approximately 13% of Albania’s total electricity generation.
In addition to the increased renewable power production, the project has contributed to significant developments in the Devoll valley in the form of new infrastructure, livelihood support and social development.
“Finalising the Moglice hydropower plant marks an important milestone for Statkraft’s activities in Albania. The country is developing to be the electricity hub of the region, opening up to further opportunities,” says Christian Rynning-Tønnesen, CEO of Statkraft.
The power plant was officially opened today, with a site visit by Albanian Prime Minister, Edi Rama and Minister of Infrastructure and Energy, Belinda Balluku.
