This project will enable the construction of a reliable electricity transmission system in Tirana and neighbouring region, towards Durres. Specifically, it will entail:
The improvements will reduce electricity losses as well as power cuts, which regularly affect 50% of the region's residents and 30% of its private businesses. Current air pollution caused by the diesel generators used during power outages is also expected to decrease.
The WBIF has allocated more than €1,100,000 as EU grant to the preparation of feasibility studies, including preliminary designs, for these two developments.
