Dialogue with the communities

Terna incontraOn 30 May in Lignana, in the province of Vercelli, we will be meeting the citizens to talk about the plan for the new overhead variant of the 220 kV Trino N.-Vercelli power line. The project involves the construction of a section of line with a length of about 2.5 km far from the town and of 6 new pylons in the municipal area of Lignana. The demolition of 2.4 km of the existing line and of 5 old pylons is planned. The meeting is an important opportunity to present the project and hear citizens’ opinions, suggestions and requests for clarification.
