Italian, Tunisian grid operators to cooperate on 600-MW undersea connection

Italy's transmission grid operator, Terna SpA, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Tunisian government-owned utility Société Tunisienne de l'Electricité et du Gaz, or Steg, to reinforce their cooperation on the 600-MW direct-current Elmed undersea connection between the two companies.

The 200-kilometer Elmed project is included on the European Commission's list of projects of common interest since it will help with the creation of a Mediterranean electricity grid as well as each country's energy security. The project will also allow Tunisia to export electricity from renewable sources to other countries in North Africa.

"The interconnection project is a solid prospect for Italy to become the European hub for the transmission and dispatching of electricity in the Mediterranean area," Terna CEO and General Manager Luigi Ferraris said in an Oct. 22 statement.
