Albania and Croatia plan joint plant

17 April 2009

[Balkan Insight, 17 April] Albania and Croatia plan to jointly construct a nuclear power plant on the shores of Lake Shkoder, near Albania’s border with Montenegro, according to Croatian officials. Tomislav Mazal, a spokesman for the Croatian economy ministry, said that a team of experts would work on the project. The 1500 MWe plant, if built, would cost about $5.3 billion. The plan has provoked disagreements in Montenegro, but the country’s prime minister, Milo Djukanovic, said there would be plenty of time to discuss issued involved in the plan. Croatia owns half of the Krsko nuclear power plant in neighbouring Slovenia.
