The Aegean Project
• Interconnection of
Lesvos, Chios and
Limnos with mainland via
a 443 km long submarine
cable
• Installation of wind
capacity totaling 706MW

Interconnection Scenario of Lesvos, Limnos, Chios with
the Interconnected System
• Interconnection of Lesvos-Evia via DC link
• Interconnection of Lesvos-Chios via AC or DC link
• Interconnection of Lesvos-Limnos via AC or DC link
Mainland
• Installation of an AC/DC converter station (C/S) close to Larimna 400kV substation
• Underground lines (HVDC) to connect Larimna S/S with Viotia and Evia East with Evia
West landing point
Islands

•
Installation of a AC/DC C/S on each island
218km HVDC submarine cable connection from Evia landing point to Lesvos
84km HVDC submarine cable connection from Lesvos to Chios
117km HVDC submarine cable connection from Lesvos to Limnos

Point to Point vs. Multiterminal Interconnection
11
Submarine Cable
• Cables are placed at a distance
of 20m from the sea shore in a
common trench of 2m depth
that is covered by 25cm of
concrete
• From there onwards and up to
a sea depth of 15m, cables are
placed in separate trenches of
2m depth
• From sea depth 15m, cables
are inserted in separate
trenches of 1m depth

4. Interconnection and MSP: discussion subjects
5. Conclusion
14
Reasons for the interconnection…
Geopolitical
Connects three islands of national importance with the
mainland
Strategic
Development of RES / reduction of energy dependency
on imports / update of electrical infrastructure
Environmental
Reduced CO2 emissions / contribution in meeting EU
RES targets for 2020
Security of supply
Channeling energy into the islands, solving in a reliable
way their power supply problems
Local acceptance
Reduce the electricity bills for local residences

Planning and Licensing – Conflict Subjects
Landing Points for each island interconnected
Crossing Evia Island for System interconnection
Lying of submarine cables
Tectonic faults and Earthquakes
Great depths and Long distances
17
Electrical System – Conflict Subjects
Calculation of the interconnection losses
Regulation of the active and reactive power
Black Start Possibility
N-1 and ways of fulfillment (loop connection)
• Interconnection of Larimna with Chios-Lesvos-Limnos- UHV
S/S Filippoi (or Nea Santa)

Conclusion
There are technical and planning problems. We can deal
with them and manage to solve them BUT the
CRUCIAL POINT
is the LOCAL ACCEPTANCE of this kind of projects
