Greek electricity transmission system operator ADMIE and cables manufacturer Hellenic Cables have signed a contract for the fourth phase of the Cyclades interconnection, related to Lavrio-Serifos and Serifos-Milos electricity connections in total length of 170 kilometers.

Hellenic Cables said that the turnkey project includes the design, manufacturing and supply of 150 kV high-voltage onshore and offshore cables as well as their accessories, the installation, laying, and protection of the onshore and offshore cables, the implementation of necessary joints and terminations, as well as the final tests after installation.

The project integrating Milos and Serifos into the continental electricity transmission system is part of the fourth and final phase of the Cyclades interconnection.

Upon completion, the new electricity interconnection will significantly upgrade the quality of electricity supply to seven more directly and indirectly interconnected islands of the Cyclades (Folegandros, Milos, Serifos, Ios, Kimolos, Sifnos and Kythnos) throughout the year while allowing the gradual withdrawal of polluting and aging oil-fired power plants still operating on Milos and Serifos.

The implementation of the project, including the installation of the cables, is expected to be completed within 28 months.
