The first generator ship that Albania will use to produce electricity has arrived in the port of Valona.
- The Albanian Government leased two such ships with a two-year contract with the companies Exelerate Energy and Renco with the support of the United States of America. The ships have large generators that will be powered by oil and produce 114 megawatt hours of electricity. This represents almost 15 percent of the needs in Albania, Top Channel reported.
The ships will be anchored near Triporti in Valona and will be connected to the onshore oil fields located in the area.
In the meantime, the connection to the power transmission system will be realized through the Valona TPP substation and the 220 kilovolt substation in Babica.
They will be put into operation together with the Valona Thermal Power Plant to turn the Valona Bay into one of the most important sources of energy in Albania.
- The ships are floating power plants with an installed power of 110 megawatts. They are expected to produce electricity at an average price much lower than the market prices on the stock exchanges. A preliminary calculation is that the price per megawatt hour will be around 200 euros. This will enable the reduction of the risk of exposure of the state company KESH when importing energy, the television states.
From January until now, Albania has spent 350 million euros to buy energy, while the price on the stock exchange is eight times higher than a year ago.
