By installing an undersea cable between the capes of Opatovo and Sveta Neđelja in the Bay of Kotor, national energy company EPCG completed an investment worth EUR 250.000.

LDU Tivat completed the project of laying the new 35 kV submarine link Opatovo – Sveta Neđelja, around 500 meters long, with the conductor’s cross-section of 240 square milimeters, ensuring spare or emergency supply of Bijela, Morinj, Tivat and Herceg Novi, the company said on its website.

„The project organized reconstruction of the present 35 kV switch bays, for transfer from air to undersea line at both ends of the cable i. e. new switching equipment was installed in both towers. Furthermore, cable placement was preceded by complex and strenuous works on setting of protective anchor blocks both on the shore and in the sea, as well as preparation of the seabed along the cable route,“ said Goran Kovačić, technical manager in LDU Tivat. The cable substitutes a half a century old line that has been out of order over the past years.

A 1 GW Italy–Montenegro underwater transmission cable project, financed by CGES (Montenegrin Electrical Transmission System) and Italian Terna, has completed its first phase in March.
