The electricity production of the first Albanian wind farm will begin in 2010.

The farm which will be built by Italian company Moncada Costruzioni in cooperation with Albanian Enpower, will rise in the area of Karaburn and Kurvelkesh, near Vlora and will have a production capacity of 500 MW.

According to the website of INFORMEST, Service and Documentation Centre for Economic International Cooperation, an underground transmission line placed at 825 metres in depth will connect the port of Vlora with Brindisi in order to carry to Italy some 400 kW of electricity.

The Albanian Government approved in August the exploitation of a forest area of 95.7 hectares in the municipality of Vlora for development of the farm.

The cost of the farm was estimated at some 750 million euro, while the energy line connecting Italy and Albania will cost some 250 million euro.

The authority which regulates the energy sector in Albania has issued the first license for energy production to company Hera which will construct in the south-east part of the country a plant of 240 million euro for production of 150 MW.

Italian Italgest also announced that weighs the idea to build a plant of 150 MW near Tirana for the total cost of 202 million euro.
