Prince Albert II inaugurates new substation in Monaco

Monaco: Prince Albert II inaugurated Monaco’s new high-voltage substation, which is the third of its kind in the Principality.

More than 330 blasts were needed to hollow out the rock to create the 2,100 m² substation, which makes use of 700 m² of an unused SCNF tunnel, which was no longer required after the construction of Monaco’s underground station, reports Hello Monaco.

The works also involved building a 300 m² two-arched bridge and extending the existing viaduct to give access to the substation.

Now complete, the station will increase Monaco’s electricity supply capacity by 50% and serve the eastern area of the Principality.
