Serbia completes $3 M underground HV cable project

Serbia: Serbia’s state-owned power grid operator Elektromreža Srbije (EMS) has completed the construction of an underground HV cable running from EMS’ substation Belgrade 17 at the Plavi Most overpass to EPS’ substation Belgrade 13 at the Autokomanda looped interchange.

The project has created conditions for more reliable and secure power supply to central parts of the city, including those with major ongoing infrastructural projects, according to a press release from EMS.

The investment to deploy the 3.2 km 110 kV underground cable was worth around $3 M (EUR 2.7 M), the transmission system operator (TSO) said in the press release.

EMS plans to deploy two more underground cables in Belgrade – one around 3 km and one 3.6 km in length.

At the same time, preparatory activities are under way to reconstruct the existing 110 kV cable running from the Belgrade 1 substation in the neighborhood of Karaburma to the Belgrade 6 substation close to the Serbian parliament building.

EMS is also building or planning to build high-voltage cables outside of Belgrade.

Đreparatory activities are also under way to deploy a HV cable in Novi Sad, from the Novi Sad 5 substation to the Novi Sad 7 substation, the TSO said.
