Red Eléctrica and the Local Council of Sagunto in Valencia, have agreed, in the Joint Monitoring Committee set up as part of the agreement between both parties in September 2014, to expand the Domus Baebia Exhibition Centre and adapt the route of the rural trail in the delta of the Palancia River, between Sagunto and Canet de Berenguer, to obtain the Blue Trail seal, which certifies the environmental sustainability and respect of the rural trail.

The Company plans to invest more than 650,000 euros in these two actions as part of the agreement signed between the two entities in September 2014; which set a maximum investment of 1.2 million euros. The Joint Monitoring Committee is composed of the Mayor of Sagunto, Francesc Fernández; the Councillor for Territory and Sustainability, Teresa García; Red Eléctrica’s Director of Institutional Relations Area, Fátima Rojas, and Red Eléctrica’s Regional Delegate in Valencia, Maite Vela.

The Committee has approved the expansion of the facilities of the Domus Baebia and will construct an annex building for the archaeological exhibition and a multipurpose area. The purpose of this action, for which Red Eléctrica has allocated 354,843 euros, is the enlargement of the Classroom-Workshop for Classical Culture in the Domus Baebia, owned by the City of Sagunto.

In addition, the Company will provide 300,087 euros for the development of a sustainable rural trail through the delta of the Palancia River, between Sagunto and Canet de Berenguer, reclaiming a walkable trail and adapting it to sustainability parameters in order to promote environmental education, the protection of biodiversity and landscape development.

The goal is to obtain the Blue Trail certification, which promotes the usage and sustainable management of coastal areas and their environment through cooperation and feedback between the tourism and the environmental sectors. This action is aimed at consolidating the Blue Trail certification as an award that is recognised and valued in the same way as the Blue Flag is for beaches.

In September 2014, Red Eléctrica and the City Council of Sagunto signed a framework agreement worth up to 1.2 million euros for actions targeted at the sustainable and environmental development of the territory associated with the construction of the infrastructure needed for the development of the electricity interconnection between the Spanish Peninsula and the Balearic Islands and also for strengthening the grid meshing in the Sagunto area.
