The Government of Albania has approved the construction of a photovoltaic facility at the dam of the Vau i Dejës hydropower plant.

Albanian power utility KESH will have 24 months for the construction and commissioning of the solar power plant from the date of obtaining the construction permit.

The construction approval deadline is 48 months, Albania’s government said.

KESH has the obligation to submit a report on the progress of the construction of the photovoltaic plant to the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy every three months.

The company applied for a license to build the photovoltaic unit at Qyrsaqi in January.

The construction of Vau i Dejës hydropower plant, which has a capacity of 250 MW, began in 1967. The last segment was finished in 1975.

KESH is also planning to install a 12.9 MW floating solar power plant at the same reservoir and finance the project with a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
