Greece - Cyprus - Israel interconnection
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.
