A project to connect Crete with the Peloponnese via an underwater cable that will put an end to the electrical isolation of the Greek island from the mainland electricity transmission system took an important step forward as the contracts for the implementation of the interconnection Crete – Peloponnese were signed on November 27 in the presence of Greece’s Energy Minister Giorgos Stathakis.
The project, which falls within European Union goals to end the energy isolation of EU islands, is expected to begin before the end of the year and to be completed in less than 2 years. In conjunction with the Crete-Attica “Great Interconnection,” the Crete-Peloponnese project will allow the Greek island not to rely for the production of electricity from oil plants leading to lower CO2 emissions and energy independence at a lower cost to the benefit of all citizens and consumers, the Greek Energy Minister said.
