TYRRHENIAN LINK: The Record-breaking Double HVDC Underwater Connection Between Sicily, Sardinia, and the Italian Peninsula

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

Terna is the Italian Transmission and System Operator responsible for planning, developing and maintaining the national transmission grid (NTG) and managing the electricity flows that pass through it. Terna ensures that the supply of electricity released into the grid constantly matches demand in terms of power consumption. As part of the major projects being developed in Italy, Terna will connect Sicily with Sardinia and the Italian peninsula via a double underwater cable: a new electricity corridor at the centre of the Mediterranean; the Tyrrhenian Link. At about 970 kilometres long and with a capacity of 1000 MW, this is an infrastructure initiative of international significance, another step towards a more sustainable energy future. The link will improve electricity exchange capacity, facilitate the development of renewable energy sources, and the reliability of the grid. The overall project involves two sections: EAST from Sicily to Campania and WEST from Sicily to Sardinia.
