ZAGREB, Oct 14, 2020 – Croatian Foreign Minister Gordan Grlic Radman said in Kidricevo, Slovenia on Wednesday that the construction of the Cirkovce-Pince transmission line would encourage the further development of the electricity market, thereby helping the EU’s economic recovery.

Grlic Radman, Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa and Hungarian PM Viktor Orban attended the laying of the cornerstone for the transmission line which will connect the three countries’ power systems.

“Strengthening infrastructure links in central Europe is beyond question, notably between Croatia, Hungary and Slovenia, three neighboring, friendly states,” said Grlic Radman.

The Cirkovce-Pince project includes the construction of an 80-kilometer-long 400 kV transmission line and it should be completed in 2022.

The construction of this transmission line “will facilitate better integration of the electricity market, ensuring supply and access to those markets in this part of Europe and encouraging the further development of that market,” said Grlic Radman.

Besides cooperation at the political level, he welcomed “the excellent cooperation at an economic level” between the relevant companies, including Croatia’s Dalekovod. 

He said the energy sector would be highly important for the EU’s economic development, adding that Croatia “will focus even more on energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, energy storage and the completion of key infrastructure projects.”

One of those projects is an LNG terminal off Krk island which should be put in operation next year. Grlic Radman also underlined the Three Seas Initiative.
