"This agreement will bring the European Union closer to our partners in the South Caucasus region and it will help both our regions achieve the clean energy transition": with these words, pronounced during the signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding for the development of the Black Sea Energy submarine cable, the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen has commented the important project where Cesi is already working for the feasibility studies.
The feasibility study will determine the best ways and possibilities of practical implementation of the Project. Energy companies from Romania and other interested neighboring countries of the South Caucasus are involved in the study process.
The Black Sea Submarine Cable (Georgia-Romania) aims to connect the South Caucasus region directly to South-Eastern Europe by means of a submarine cable across the Black Sea with a length of approximately 1195 km (1100 km submarine cable and 95 km on land). The submarine cable will also be equipped with a fiber optic cable that will provide high-quality Internet connection between Romania and Georgia.
According to the president of the European Commission, the Black Sea submarine cable is "an ambitious project. It would connect us on both sides of the Black Sea and run further towards the Caspian Sea region – both for digital communication and for energy. It will help reinforce our security of supply by bringing electricity from renewable sources to the European Union, via Romania and through Hungary".
