The construction of an electricity interconnection between Crete and the Peloponnese on mainland Greece will provide the island with a cheaper and more secure energy supply.
The project includes laying two new submarine cables – each 135 km long – making this the longest sub-sea alternative current connection in the world. Additional work includes upgrading and construction of transmission lines, underground cables and substations in Crete and on the mainland. The interconnector will provide around 34 % of Crete’s total electricity demand in 2021.
