The BasinRiver Tirana Tirana river constitutes the principal branch of Ishmi river . It has an ovearlllength of 35 km , and collects the water of Lana river and Limuthi branch. Themain river Ishem is formed downstream Tirana city. The hydrographic catchment of Ishmi river has a total area of 673 km2. Ithas a total length of about 75 km and an average elevation of 357 m. The Ishmiriver is formed by three main rivers Tirana river, Tercuza river and Zeza riverTirana river January 2012

Rivers crossing the Capital TiranaTwo relevant rivers cross the city; the Lana River and the Tirana river. Those two water bodies meet the main Ishem River downstream of Tirana city. Point where Tirana river join’s Lana river
Lana RiverLana River is a tributary of River Tirana, which crosses from East to West theurban area of the Capital.

Tirana River Cascade Hydropower Potential• Tirana’s river watershed energy project, will include the constructions of two hydropower plants situated in two sites along the Tirana river flow Zall-Dajt and Brar.• Average perennial flow rate is 2,7 cubic m/s. The output energy shall enter the 20 kV substation situated 1000 m far from the HP plant. The plant will be placed at approximately 8 km from the capital.• A concession contract is expected to be concluded with the Ministry of Economy and Energy, once an investor shall be identified and will take it over.• Construction permit will be granted by the Government following the presentation of a detailed design of the work.
