CESI has conducted a study about marine power cables laid in valuable environmental areas, in particular crossing Posidonia oceanica meadows. The study deals with different submarine interconnections laid on seagrass meadows, from 1970 to now. The results made possible to associate every case study and protection technique to the best mitigation measures related to the habitat. For each case, CESI has highlighted the possible impacts and the recovery time of Posidonia oceanica, sometimes totally unexpected. CESI’ study paves the way for writing the possible guidelines on this topic, guidelines not yet available. The study was carried out by Tommaso Granata and Letizia Moruzzi of CESI Engineering and Environment Division and presented during the “Developing electricity grids, protecting our seas” workshop, organized by RGI “Renewables Grid Initiative” in Palma de Mallorca from 25th to 27th September 2017.
