    June 24, 2022 - Contify Energy News

     

      The Terna project for the restructuring of the High and Extra-High-Voltage electricity grid in the capital comes to life. The company managing the national electricity grid will invest over 120 million Euro over the next few years to improve operation safety and transmission service continuity in the north-west Rome area in order to meet the city’s increasing load. More in detail, the works planned by Terna and shared with the Lazio Region, the Municipality of Rome and the Entities managing the protected areas will demolish over 120 km of overhead power lines and install approximately 45 km of new connections, over half of which featuring underground cables.

      Original Press Release:

      June 24 -- TERNA S.p.A. issued the following news release:

      - Overall, the works will demolish over 120 km of overhead power lines leading to considerable environmental and landscape benefits; the Terna investment will improve the safety and quality of the local electricity service; on June 27th, Terna technicians will meet the public and the associations involved in the project for the north-west area of the capital

      The Terna project for the restructuring of the High and Extra-High-Voltage electricity grid in the capital comes to life. The company managing the national electricity grid will invest over 120 million Euro over the next few years to improve operation safety and transmission service continuity in the north-west Rome area in order to meet the city’s increasing load.

      More in detail, the works planned by Terna and shared with the Lazio Region, the Municipality of Rome and the Entities managing the protected areas will demolish over 120 km of overhead power lines and install approximately 45 km of new connections, over half of which featuring underground cables.

      Significant environmental and landscape benefits will derive from the demolitions envisaged in protected natural areas such as Parco di Veio, where over 35 km of old lines will be demolished with 9.5 km of underground cables along the existing roads and 9 km of overhead lines being installed. Terna will remove 4 km of old lines and replace them with 3 km of new lines in Riserva Naturale della Marcigliana as well.

      The communities of Municipi XV, XIV, XIII in the Prima Porta, Settebagni, Valle Muricana, Giustiniana, Primavalle and Casalotti areas will especially benefit from the activities planned by Terna.

      The works envisaged by the restructuring of the north-west area of the capital have been divided into two separate groups. The first includes the creation of a new Electrical Substation and of mixed overhead/cable short connections for an investment of approximately € 80 million. The design phase will end on Monday, June 27th with a “Terna Meets...” event organized at the Centro Anziani di Valle Muricana, Via Pegognaga 5 (Municipio XV): between 4 and 8 pm, company technicians and engineers will meet the citizens, institutions and associations affected to present the details and characteristics of the works and answer questions.

      As for the second set of works (which also includes a new underground power line of approximately 30 km and the demolition of the 35 km “Roma Ovest–Primavalle–Flaminia–Fiano Romano” power line), Terna, which will invest € 45 million, will initiate the authorisation proceedings with the Ministry of Ecological Transition by the end of June.
