Underwater cable Montenegro-Italy successfully tested
In 2019, Montenegro and Italy will be linked via underwater cable. Italian based Terna successfully tested the power cable in total length which means that it is fully technically correct and ready for uninterrupted operation and use. However, the contracted capacity of the cable is 1000 MW, while so far, Terna laid only a single cable of 500 MW. Length of the cable equals over 430 km. Montenegro will insist on obtaining 200 MW capacity and revenue from congestion, which is deemed as an integral part of the arrangement. Overall investment is evaluated at around €1 billion, 80% of which will be covered by Terna..
