About the project

Nexans was awarded one of two lots of a contract for the supply and installation of a power cable for the high-voltage direct current (HVDC) link between Italy and Montenegro. It represented a value of approximately 300 Million Euros. The public tender was called by Terna Rete Italia S.p.A, a company fully owned by Terna S.p.A, the operator of Italy’s electricity transmission system

The new link between Italy and Montenegro should connect the Italian peninsula with the Balkans and contribute to improve the integration of the European Countries’ electricity systems.

Nexans' solution

The HVDC interconnection between Italy and Montenegro is approximately 415 km in length, comprising 393 km of subsea cable and 22 km of underground cable for the onshore connections. In total, it features two 500 kV HVDC cables in a bipolar configuration (2 x 500 MW), with one cable supplied by Nexans.
