The first energy bridge between the European Union and the Balkans was installed yesterday near the Jaz cape in the Kotor municipality. This submarine power cable will connect Montenegro with Italy. The cable is being constructed by Italian Terna company and Montenegrin Power Transmission System (CGES).
Djukanovic said that by the beginning of the works, we entered into a new phase of strategic submarine power cable project which is being implemented by the Italian state-owned company Terna and Montenegro’s power grid operator, CGES.
“About 136km of the cable has already been installed from the Italian coast. The total cable length between Pescara in Italy and Jaz cape is 455km”, he said.
According to him, from the initial idea, through a ratified international agreement between Montenegro and Italy, this project in a few years has been accepted as a strategic interest not only of our two countries, but also of the Western Balkans and the EU.
“The cable is additionally important since it represents a generator of rapid energy development in the region, which paves the way for new Trans-Balkan energy corridor. It combines the interests of both the Energy Community and the Western Balkans countries. This is confirmed by the fact that the EU supported this project through Western Balkan Investment Framework with a €25m grant for constructing 400kV power line Pljevlja–Bajina Basta”, he said.
