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. Located on the Devoll river in the south-eastern part of Albania, Moglice hydropower plant comprises a 167 meters high asphalt-core rock-filled dam, a 10.7 kilometer long headrace tunnel, an underground powerhouse with two main generators of 91.5 megawatt each and a 1 megawatt eco-flow unit at the foot of the dam.

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.
