The Resita-Pančevo transmission line construction between Romania and Serbia is getting closer to the end. The role of the interconnection between two countries is of strengthening national electricity systems as well as the South-East European one.

Romania’s national electricity transmission company, Transelectrica announced that it completed the crossing of the border to Serbia with the 400 kV Resita (Romania) – Pancevo (Serbia) transmission line. This is one of the final stages in the realization of the interconnection project on the Romania-Serbia relationship, according to energynomics.

The 400 kV Resita-Pancevo is a project of common interest at European level. It will allow also the elimination of major congestions in the Romanian and Serbian power systems as well as the increase of the transfer capacity between two countries and across the South-Eastern Europe.

“I am glad we have been able to unlock this important project for Transelectrica, in recent months. The works at the Resita-Pancevo line have a high level of complexity and engage specialists from many fields. In the West [of Romania], there is a major project – Mid Continental East Corridor – which contributes crucially to the strategic priorities of the European Union for trans-European energy infrastructure. The Resita – Pancevo line is part of this project, but also of ours, and of the Government’s strategy of closing the 400 kV ring”, said Corina Popescu, CEO of Transelectrica, according to The Diplomat.

Construction of the Serbian section of the overhead power line towards Reșița in Romania started at Pančevo substation northeast of capital Belgrade, in early 2016. The project worth EUR 24.7 million was planned to be completed by the end of this year for the trial run, the transmission system operator Elektromreža Srbije (EMS) announced back then.
