IBERDROLA has revealed that it is spending a total of €2 million on improving the electricity cable network in Torrevieja on Spain’s Costa Blanca.
The city council’s Councillor Sandra Sanchez met with Iberdrola representatives Guillermo Raga, David Rubio and Jorge Castejón, who said that in the period 2018-19 an investment exceeding €1.4 million was made in the city. This was spent mainly on the renovation and laying of new underground power lines and the digitisation and improvement of the medium voltage network.
The company says it now has planned an investment of close to another €2 million, half of which is already being processed or executed. In addition to this spending on the cable network, the company has invested €6.5 million in the city’s transformer substation.
It now plans to devote another €1.7 million to equip the substation with a new electrical transformer with the ability to output 10 other medium voltage lines that will result in a more reliable electricity supply.
Iberdrola has more than 127,000 customers in Torrevieja, serving them through its 414 transformation centres, its 310 kilometres of medium voltage lines and more than 850 kilometres of low voltage lines.
