A final decision on the construction of the hydroelectric power stations will be made at a later stage.

Northern Albania is home to most of the country’s hydroelectric power stations with a total capacity of 1700 MW.

This engagement in Albania marks the start of Alpiq’s activities to harness the power of water in South Eastern Europe. Alpiq has extensive know-how in the field of hydroelectricity. For more than 100 years the company has been operating hydroelectric power stations in Switzerland, where it boasts a capacity of almost 3000 MW.
