The connection of the electricity line section in Romania (Resita – RO-SE border) with that in Serbia (Pancevo – the SE-RO border) is due to end on this weekend. Transelectrica states that 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 OHL is a project of common interest at European level and it realizes the interconnection with Serbia with the role of strengthening the Romanian national electricity system as well as the South-East European one. The 400 kV Resita-Pancevo OHL will allow the elimination of major congestions in the Romanian and Serbian power systems as well as the increase of the transfer capacity between Romania and Serbia 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.
