The expansion of electric transport

The Ministry of Electricity works on a works plan to expand the electrical transport system covering the next 10 years

The Electric Power Secretariat is working on a works plan to expand the electric transport system that covers the increase in energy demand from the generation of new thermoelectric plants and also from renewable energy plants in the next 10 years.

The expansion of the transport system involves the development of regional transmission networks in medium and high voltage -132 and 500 kilovolts (Kv) -, in addition to others for the construction of works to improve the associated transformation capacity. The Online Investor was able to access the list of the main works to be carried out in the next decade: These are projects that will involve investments of more than US $ 10,000 million in the next decade.

In the list of works figure:
- Rio Diamante High Voltage Line (Province of Mendoza) - Charlone (Province of Buenos Aires) and associated Transformation Stations.
- San Juan High Voltage Line - Rodeo (Province of San Juan) and associated Transformer Stations.
- Rodeo High Voltage Line (Province of San Juan) - La Rioja Sur (Province of La Rioja) and associated Transformation Stations.
- High Voltage Line C.T. Belgrano - ET Oscar Smith (Province of Buenos Aires) and associated Transformation Stations.
- Atucha II High Voltage Line - C.T. Belgrano (Province of Buenos Aires) and associated Transformation Stations.
