Renewable energy leader Voltalia announces the completion of the Karavasta solar plant, the largest in Albania and the Western Balkans, with a 140 MW capacity.
The plant is set to power 220,000 residents, offsetting over 29,165 tonnes of CO2 annually and aligning with Albania’s goal of 54.4% renewable energy by 2030. The project, spanning 200 hectares, was completed in under 18 months with secured long-term contracts.
Sébastien Clerc, CEO of Voltalia, responding to questions from French President Emmanuel Macron and Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, said, “Voltalia thanks all stakeholders who have made the Karavasta project a reality, particularly the Albanian Council of Ministers, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Energy, as well as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. I also warmly thank everyone on our team who contributed to this success. Karavasta is a shining example of how quickly decarbonised and competitive local electricity production can be implemented.”
