    Terna: new works authorised for the Rome electricity grid


    December 6, 2022 - Contify Energy News

     

      Terna's plan to redevelop the high and extra-high voltage grid in the Rome metropolitan area is going ahead. The Ministry of Environment and Energy Security has in fact green-lighted the works, which envisage a new underground cable connection in the territories of Municipio XI and XII. Terna, led by Stefano Donnarumma, has earmarked more than € 2 million to invest in the works. The connection will follow existing local roads and at the Magliana RT substation will link up with the 150 kV “Magliana-Ponte Galeria” line.

      Key Highlight:

      * The section of underground line is short at little more than 500 metres, but when combined with the reconstructed electric substation will allow for the partial demolition of two existing overhead power lines, the “Magliana-Palidoro” and “Aurelia-Magliana”, which a total about 15 km and include 65 supports across densely populated areas.

      Original Press Release:

      Dec. 5 -- TERNA S.p.A. issued the following news release:

      - The new 500-metre underground cable section will allow for the demolition of about 15 km of area lines comprising a total of 65 supports in Municipio XI and XII; the works, benefiting from a 2 million euro-plus investment by Terna, are part of a scheme to overhaul the high and extra-high voltage grid in the capital's metropolitan area

      Terna's plan to redevelop the high and extra-high voltage grid in the Rome metropolitan area is going ahead. The Ministry of Environment and Energy Security has in fact green-lighted the works, which envisage a new underground cable connection in the territories of Municipio XI and XII. Terna, led by Stefano Donnarumma, has earmarked more than € 2 million to invest in the works.

      The connection will follow existing local roads and at the Magliana RT substation will link up with the 150 kV “Magliana-Ponte Galeria” line. The section of underground line is short at little more than 500 metres, but when combined with the reconstructed electric substation will allow for the partial demolition of two existing overhead power lines, the “Magliana-Palidoro” and “Aurelia-Magliana”, which a total about 15 km and include 65 supports across densely populated areas.

      The demolition work will affect over 2 km of power lines within two protected areas: the “Tenuta dei Massimi” and “Valle dei Casali” Regional Nature Reserves.

      The works are part of a broader plan to redevelop the electricity grid in the Rome metropolitan area, in relation to which a special Memorandum of Understanding has been signed with the Municipality of Rome. The agreement provides for the rationalisation of the city's high and extra-high voltage network and the construction of more underground cable lines in order to reduce the impact on the environment and the urban landscape.

      The Ministry rubber-stamped the authorisation decree following significant collaboration and dialogue between Terna and the municipal administration. In recent weeks, Rome's electricity grid management company met with citizens affected by existing overhead lines. The company's intention was to set out its plan of activities, thereby confirming its concern for the needs of local communities.
