Enel is willing to agree to build an atomic power plant in Albania, if the Albanian and Italian governments reach a collaboration agreement. This is what was declared by an Enel representative to the Thomson Financial News, today, and reported by Balkanweb.com.
"In the event that an agreement is reached between the two governments, we will evaluate this project," said Enel's representative to the Thomson Financial News, after the interview of the Albanian Prime Minister, Sali Berisha , to the Corriere della Sera, this Thursday.
Enel signed a memorandum of understanding with KESH, the Albanian electricity company, in December of the 2007 for the construction of a coal-fired thermal power plant, but talks on the construction of an atomic power plant were not held.
The idea of building the atomic power plant in Albania with the help of Italy was reiterated this Thursday by Prime Minister Berisha to the Corriere della Sera. Even the Italian Minister of the Economy, Giulio Tremonti, has previously declared that Italy must request the construction of atomic power plants in the neighboring countries bordering the Adriatic, such as Albania and Montenegro.
