Building permits sought for small hydro in Albania

Local developers have submitted construction permits for the development of two hydro plants with capacity up to 2 MW.

Albania’s Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy has received applications from local developers for construction permits for two small hydropower plants with capacity of up to 2 MW, according to a list of applications posted on the website of the Ministry on 5 May.

A consortium comprising GMG and Engineering Systems has applied to build a small run-of-river plant on the river Kushe in the central region of Elbasan, while Kernaja Power submitted a request to build a plant on the river Bushtrica in the northern region of Kukes. In April, local company AB-01 Energji submitted an application for a permit to build a plant of up to 2 MW on a tributary of the river Devoll, near the city of Elbasan, while three applications were submitted for building permits for plants with installed capacity of up to 2 MW each on branches of the river Drin in the northern part of the country.
