Students of the Institute ‘Salvador Victoria’ in Monreal del Campo (Teruel) were taken on a visit to see first-hand the infrastructure and learned about the technical characteristics and the building process of one of the major infrastructure projects that Red Eléctrica is currently carrying out in the Autonomous Community of Aragón, and in Spain: the 400 kilovolt (kV) Mezquita-Morella and Mudéjar-Morella lines.

During the visit, students and their teacher were accompanied by Red Eléctrica’s Delegate in Aragón, Jose Ignacio Lallana, as well as by technical staff. Previously in March, some of the Company’s management team visited said Institute with the aim of providing information and explaining the activities carried out by Red Eléctrica and operation of the electricity system in our country.

An infrastructure necessary for the strengthening of the transmission grid and that has generated a considerable economic activity in the region

The 400 kV Mezquita-Morella and Mudéjar-Morella electricity lines contribute to strengthening the meshing of the transmission grid, improve the security and quality of electricity supply in the province of Teruel and increase the evacuation capacity of generation coming from both ordinary regime and renewable sources. Its construction, which is scheduled to be completed in the last quarter of 2016, represents an investment of 99.3 million euros in the province of Teruel.

In addition, Red Eléctrica has earmarked 222,000 euros for the development of initiatives of a social, cultural and environmental nature in 14 municipalities in the province of Teruel and through which these double circuit lines run. The lines, with an approximate length of 90 kilometres, are compacted in the municipality La Ginebrosa into a single quadruple circuit that then runs to Morella (Castellón), thus minimizing the environmental impact on the territory.

The construction of these lines has generated considerable economic activity in the region. Some of the supplies were purchased from local companies in the area, some of these companies also participated in complementary activities such as excavation works.
