Greece - Cyprus - Is­rael in­ter­con­nec­tion

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Plans for an elec­tric­ity grid link­ing Greece, Cyprus and Is­rael have been largely dis­cussed in the Greek and Greek Cypriot press, and have been at­tract­ing plenty of en­thu­si­asm. In May, INEA ap­proved fund­ing con­cern­ing the de­sign, im­ple­men­ta­tion and en­vi­ron­men­tal stud­ies of the EuroAsia In­ter­con­nec­tor.

The In­ter­con­nec­tor PCI aims to sup­port the build­ing of an ap­prox­i­mately 1,518 km­long 400 kV grid line with a ca­pac­ity of around 2 GW be­tween Hadera in Is­rael and the re­gion near Athens in Greece.

The stud­ies ap­proved by INEA will specif­i­cally de­fine the tech­ni­cal and tech­no­log­i­cal so­lu­tion and as­sess the pos­si­ble en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact of the pro­ject. They “will also se­lect the pre­ferred route cor­ri­dor (among those al­ready pre­de­fined) and pro­vide use­ful re­sults for the ca­ble en­gi­neer­ing”, said the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion.
