iPresas performs risk analyses for 3 dams in Albania
Risk analyses conducted in Albania in the period 2014-2015 included the following dams in the Drin river: Fierze dam (162 m high), Koman dam (120 m high) and ‘Vau i Dejes’ system of dams (3 dams ranging from 21 to 60 m high).
All dams, with a total reservoir capacity of 3800 Hm³, provide hydropower generation which yields an annual average production rate of 3700 GWh (90% of annual production in the country).
Risk analyses were conducted to inform decision-making on dam monitoring, surveillance and emergency management. In addition, specific training activities were developed for enhancing knowledge transfer on dam safety and risk management issues.
The work was presented during the Spanish Dam Congress held in Seville in 2015, and it is described in the following conference paper:
