Energy To The Southern Balkans
The lack of investments in their own energy resources has brought countries in the Region to depend on energy import. The current energy crises may only be prevailed through the joint forces of state authorities, national business associations, advisory companies and foreign investments.
VeVe Group offers comprehensive technical solutions, legal advice and assistance regarding concession-related issues.
For that instance we are proud of our achieved partnerships with major business clients like EVN, Statkraft and Verbund. Together, we have successfully concluded some of the biggest concession based foreign investment projects in the recent years, particularly the three hydro power plants being built on Devolli River in the Central Albania as well as Ashta Run-off-River dam on Black-Drin River in the North of the country. It is an estimated cumulative investment of over 1 billion Euros.
The cost effective and environmentally clean power being generated at hydro-power plants needs to be sustained with extensive investments only possible by well-designed concession agreements.
The Southern Balkan is abundant with water resources of which VeVe Group has identified locations for the purpose of developing numerous potential power plants to fulfill the shortage in the energy supply.
Out of 400 available locations, for our business partners, we have identified the most favorable by means of plausibility and profitability.
Also, we have developed detailed projects and made all necessary logistics preparations for the construction of 24 small hydro-power plants in Albania. For this venture our intentions are to invest in cooperation with international partners.
VeVe Group has also developed a project for constructing thermal power plant in the vicinity of the Albanian-Macedonian border, the project of which is expected to further enhance energy reserves for both countries.
Our company has already developed a scheme regarding long-distance transmission lines and substations in several districts in the country. With the government support, additional stations will be added making Albania’s energy network adequate for embracing new power sources and connecting with similar systems of other neighboring countries.
Especially attractive is the project that VeVe Group has implemented jointly with SAMSUNG, on digitalization of the metering systems within the distribution network. This application will enable the function of advanced user services such as VoIP telephony, fast Internet access, video monitoring and complete control over the billing system whereby will contribute to a significant cost reduction in favor of energy companies in both countries.
We have also drafted projects on complete development of the gasification conveyor network in Macedonia and consequently Albania. Our idea is to work on the currently unexploited gas pipeline leading to Skopje, in order to expand and upgrade it to include other bigger towns, industrial facilities and HPP plants in Macedonia, Albania, and Kosovo. For this purpose, we have detailed technical studies on potential urban networks and the gains to be achieved with exploitation of this cheap energy source.
The tourism has been neglected in both countries due to turbulent difficult times and deterioration of the tourist resorts and resources.
Albanian coast is considered to be least developed in comparison to other coasts of the Mediterranean countries. Our aim is through extensive development of several major tourist resorts like Vlora, Saranda and Durres, to make Albania’s tourist offer much more attractive.
We have developed several business plans in order to promote the possibility for regeneration and rejuvenation of neglected ski centers throughout Albania and Macedonia. There has been suggested a development for new hotels, weekend settlements, ski lifts, aerial cableways, and modern ski routes within the largest and most beautiful mountain ranges in both countries.
Our interest also encompasses a revival of other re-emerging tourist attractions like the thermal baths and spa centers. We have recommended several technical projects to our key business partners’ on renovation and improvement of existing bath centers and construction of new spa development on several locations in the Region.

Here are some of the projects from our portfolio:
Business premises - the city center, Skopje
Situated in the central area of the city, The Main Square-Makedonija, occupying the top floor of the business/shopping center City Gallery, with a functional area of 1600m2, represents without doubt very attractive location.
Business Center - Tirana
VEVE Group is the owner and developer of VeVe Business Center, the first business center and undeniably a building milestone in Albania, located in the heart of Tirana at the Skenderbeg square close to the Tirana International Hotel.
Business, Shopping and Cultural Center, Tirana
The new VeVe Business, Shopping and Cultural Center will represent an impressive building with an area of 22.000 square meters at the central Skenderbeg square in Tirana. The immediate vicinity of the Central Government Building and the fact that is located in the heart of the city will surely make a genuine landmark of Tirana.
Luxury property development, Durres
The building construction of 20 luxury villas is expected to commence soon (June 2009), covering an area of 10.300 m2 on the hill overlooking the Adriatic Sea. The site is very close to Durres and the famous beach resort town of Golem, with 22 km of unspoiled white sand beaches and breathtaking sunsets.
Each of these villas will cover a section of average 400 m2 area.
Additionally, recreational premises, visitors’ services, bars, restaurants, entertainment halls, fitness centers and other leisure facilities will be build on 1090 m2 area. This tourist complex will be connected directly to a private beach via cable cars.
Simultaneously with the ongoing resort construction, a small boat marina is expected to be built nearby the elite settlement.
While the effect from the energy crisis is reflected in the economic growth of the country, with dedication and a sense of responsibility towards future generations, Albwind-07 has been investing since 2007 in a study of wind power potential in Albania.
Albwind-07, as a part of VeVe Group, is a company entirely committed to wind power exploitation on the territory of Albania. For that purpose our company has installed wind measuring stations as high as 50 meters, equipped with high quality sensors and mechanism devices from German origin. Based on the results generated from the wind speed measurement and a pre-feasibility study, the wind potential at the selected areas is very encouraging for enabling future construction of wind farms.
It is worth noticing that a study of this kind has not been carried out before, not only in Albania but in other Balkan countries as well.
