Statkraft starts operations of Moglice hydropower plant in Albania

Statkraft has started commercial operations of its Moglice hydropower plant located on the Devoll river in the south-eastern part of Albania. The Moglice hydropower plant is the largest of the two hydropower plants built under the Devoll hydropower project and will generate approximately 450 GWh per year. Together with the Banja hydropower plant, Statkraft’s hydropower production in the Devoll valley will reach 700 GWh per year. This will be around 13 per cent of the total electricity generation in Albania. The Moglice hydropower plant has a 167 metre 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 ecoflow unit at the foot of the dam.
