"Blackout in Albania", Balluku: We are in a critical situation, the

The Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, Belinda Balluku, has appeared in an extraordinary conference regarding the power outage across the country at noon.

Balluku stated that this situation was created as a result of a breakdown in the Albania-Greece interconnection line, large flows in the network and extremely high temperatures.

The minister added that the situation was normalized in a short time, but the risk of recurrence remains high.

"I want to inform you about the critical situation we are facing regarding the electricity transmission system. Starting from the Albania-Greece interconnection line, which had a breakdown and then in a cascade effect throughout the country, we had power cuts throughout Albania. The same situation happened in Montenegro and Croatia. The high volumes in the transmission systems and the temperatures created this breakdown. From the good work that has been done in the field, we have recovered the power distribution for 30 minutes. We are in danger as the transmission volumes are large in the interconnection lines" , said Balluku.
