ASHTA 1 & 2

One of the biggest renewable  energy  projects in the Albania where for the first  time  the  new   technology  of  matrix turbines  was  used.  HPP  Ashta supplies   electricity   to  more  than  100, 000   Albanian   households.  The construction  for  the  upper  power  plant started in the beginning of 2010; more  than  200  million  euros were  invested.  From  2013,  the  electricity generated is fed into the Albanian 110-kV grid.

With a high level of professionalism, open communication and reliability as well as excellent collaboration with the Albanian authorities, we were able to  finalize  this  project  in  record  time  and with the highest standards of quality,  environmental  protection  and safety.The total capacity of the two plants (Ashta 1 and Ashta 2) with matrix turbines amounts to more than 50 megawatts; 242 million kilowatt hours are generated annually.

Average annual power production
(Ashta 1 and Ashta 2):                                               240 million kWh

Turbines: number/type of turbine:                             2 x 45 / matrix turbines

Total capacity (Ashta 1 and Ashta 2):                         53 MW
