Installation of undersea interconnection between Montenegro and Italy will include Alstom, according to an article by Dnevne novine. Portal CdM reported the French company was hired by Toshiba T&D Europe, which is responsible of constructing two conversion stations in Pescara in Italy and Kotor in Montenegro. Alstom will design and install its high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission technology produced in Italy and the United States, the article said.

“This project is the first electricity bridge connecting the Balkan countries, allowing more green energy to be introduced to the grid. This is well in line with Alstom’s goal to incorporate more clean energy towards a reliable and resilient European electrical grid,” said Patrick Palas, senior vice president of Alstom Grid.

The cable project is implemented by Terna, Italian electricity transmission system operator, and the Montenegrin Electric Power Transmission System (CGES).
