<strong>CESI Hosts Board Meeting for Black Sea Cable Project</strong>
02 . Feb . 2024

CESI is currently hosting the board meeting for the Black Sea Submarine Electricity Cable project, which started on January 31 and will run through February 2.

The project features an HVDC infrastructure that connects Georgia and Romania across the Black Sea, spanning approximately 1100 km of 525kV submarine cable and including converter stations on both ends. This interconnection is anticipated to bring significant economic benefits to the South Caucasus Countries by enabling energy exports to Romania and other nations in South-Eastern Europe. Furthermore, the Optical Fiber Cable, a crucial component of the Interconnection Project, aims to enhance broadband data traffic in the South Caucasus Countries.

The main goal of the current meeting is to discuss the notable outcomes of the Black Sea Submarine Cable (BSSC) Feasibility Study with all project stakeholders. Participants include GSE (Georgian TSO), Transelectrica (Romanian TSO), AzerEnerji (Azerbaijani TSO), MVM & Mavir (Hungarian Electricity Companies), and The World Bank, which is actively supporting the project.
