Transmission system ready to supply electricity to Crete island

IPTO informs that it takes all necessary measures in order to transfer electricity through the new Crete-Peloponnese interconnection.

Following an official request submitted by HEDNO to IPTO today, July 2nd, 2021, regarding the energy supply from the Hellenic Electricity Transmission System to the System of Crete, due to the reduction of the island’s available power-generating units, IPTO informs that it takes all necessary measures, in consultation with the Ministry of Environment & Energy, in order to transfer electricity through the new Crete-Peloponnese interconnection.

It is estimated that this will be made possible within the next 24 hours, after coordinating the actions of all involved parties, which will allow the interoperability of the two systems in the most secure and reliable way.
