France-Italy energy link secures hefty EU loan

The Piedmont-Savoy energy connector will boost exchange capacity between Italy and France by 1,200 MW: the same as one nuclear reactor.

The EIB on 21 July signed an agreement with Italian energy company group Terna, which will unlock €130 million in funds for a project that will link the French and Italian energy grids.

Terna’s “Piedmont-Savoy” 190km interconnector will link northwest Italy with southeast France, between Piossasco and Grande-Île.

Slated for completion by the end of 2019, the link will be the fourth of its kind between the two countries and will increase exchange capacity by 1,200 MW, roughly the capacity of one nuclear reactor. The Piedmont-Savoy interconnector will also be the world’s longest direct current cable line.

Work begins on French-Italy power interconnector

French power grid operator RTE has started work on a new 190 km power interconnection across the Alps to Italy, in an effort to ease congestion on the existing lines to the largest importer of French electricity.

Terna is working on the underground cable project with its French counterpart, RTE. Total costs are estimated to reach a billion euros.
