Small hydropower plant (HPP).

TIRANA (Albania), December 20 (SeeNews) – Albanian company Magna Energy has applied for a building permit for the construction of a small hydro power plant (HPP), the energy ministry said.

The company plans to build a HPP of up to 2 MW on a tributary of Drinos river in Albania's southern region of Gjirokastra, the energy ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

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.
