Small hydropower plant (HPP).

TIRANA (Albania), November 13 (SeeNews) – Albanian company Autovizion Al has applied for a building permit for two small hydro power plants (HPPs), the country's energy ministry said on Tuesday.

The company plans to build two HPPs of up to 2 MW each on a tributary of Shkumbin river near the southeastern city of Korca, the energy ministry said in a statement.

Albania produces over 90% of its electricity from HPPs, most of it from three power plants along the Drin river, in the northern part of the country.
