Enemalta signs agreement to repair Interconnector at an expense of €11 million

Over the last few days, Enemalta signed an agreement to repair the Interconnector.

This was announced during a press conference by the Ministry of Energy and Water. It was explained that a ship was brought to examine the cause of the blackout. Enemalta explained that according to the video footage taken by the ship Polar King, damage was caused to the Interconnector between Malta and Sicily on 23 December. From the footage one could see that the cable had been cut by the anchor which was dragged along the seabed.

Minister Michael Farrugia explained that later today the ship would be entering the Grand Harbour in Marsaxlokk so that the Enemalta standby cable can be loaded on board.

The work is expected to be completed by the end of March and the repairs are expected to cost €11 million.
