Transmission line upgrade, Albania

We undertook a feasibility study to define the technical solution for creating new transmission lines to provide a stable supply for domestic and industrial customers in Albania.

The country was experiencing frequent interruptions in electricity supply due to the transmission network being overloaded. Demand increases as well as new power generation sources (thermal, hydro and wind) being added to the national grid were contributing to this overloading.

This is one of 16 projects we have been contributing to within the Western Balkans Investment Framework – designed to promote the socio-economic development of Western Balkans countries through investments in infrastructure.

Our role included feasibility study, transmission system studies, cost/benefit analysis, environmental and social impact assessments and training to the transmission system operator OST.

We undertook a feasibility study to define the technical solution. New options identified included the construction of a double circuit line 220kV line from Elbasan 1 - Kuçovë - Fier and a 220/110kV substation with 120MVA capacity in Kuçovë, a 400kV line from Elbasan 2 (400kV) to Fier and a 400kV substation and 400/220kV transformation at Fier.
