The local council approved a draft agreement with Terna which provides for setting up transmission lines and associated power equipment through several settlements of their town, portal CdM reports.

Terna pledged to finance the settlement of terrain for the construction of transmission lines and installation of energy equipment. The value of works amounts to EUR 3.4 million. After getting approval from Croatia for the country’s waters, there are no more obstacles, the article said.
