The Elbasan-based Skraqi has also been given the go-ahead by the Albanian authorities to construct the Uraka hydro plant in the Librazhd district. The plant will be built under the BOT system.

Meanwhile, the rehabilitation of the Vau I Dejes hydro plant on the Drini river in Albania started recently. A total of US$8M has been allocated for the reconstruction of the plant under a programme drafted by the Albanian Power Corporation (KESH).
