  • Tendering

As Devoll Hydropower is the largest hydropower project currently in implementation in Albania and contracts to be awarded involve highly technical capacity, a pre-qualification phase for bidders was carried out.
The companies participating in the tender are reputable companies with wide international experience.
This enables DHP to have confidence to contract skilled and experienced companies to construct the project.

DHP believes that this large and complex project will also open many work opportunities for Albanian (sub) contractors and workers.
Once DHP will award the contracts for specific works it will publicly announce the winner companies.

The main tenders packages are:

  • Civil works
  • Electro-mechanical works
  • Hydraulic steelworks
  • Transmission lines
  • Preparatory works
