Upon completion of the first connection between Torre Annunziata and Capri, Terna will open the construction sites for the second undersea cable which will connect Capri with Sorrento. The works will involve some temporary inconveniences for the local communities (here for the works map), but they will bring numerous benefits.
The Sorrento peninsula is currently served by an obsolete electricity grid from the 1960s which is no longer able to guarantee coverage of the electricity demand. The completion of the new 150 kV “Sorrento-Capri” connection will have a positive impact for all consumers in the peninsula, improving the reliability of the electricity grid and electricity supply. In collaboration with the Municipality of Sorrento, the works will complete the existing partially-constructed link with the power line connecting the island of Capri with Torre Annunziata. The works will therefore supply both Capri and the Sorrento peninsula with the dual power supply required to guarantee greater operational quality, security and continuity.
