Setting the power cable towards our country goes as it is planned, claims Armani.

The most important fact for Montenegro is that precisely we will got a bridge through which primarily we, but also other countries will offer its electricity to Italy, which could be further diverted to France or Greece if it comes to the announced possible connection with this countries.

Benefits for Montenegro are multi-million; primarily just our country is the main hub without witch the electricity transmission to European countries will not be able to be done. Also, the project implementation significantly improves the transmission network in Montenegro.
