Colombia and Venezuela advance interconnection plans

The first meeting to advance electrical energy integration between Colombia and Venezuela was recently held in Caracas.

An intergovernmental power committee agreed to pave the way for the establishment of interconnection points as well as how to best achieve power commercialisation.

One of the first goals will be to complete the interconnection between Colombian city of Puerto Inirida and Venezuela’s San Fernando de Atabapo, BNAmericas reports.

Other potential interconnections that will be studied are:

  • Puerto Colombia-Maroa;
  • Casuarito-Puerto Ayacucho;
  • Guasdualito-Arauca; and
  • San Carlos de Ràƒ­o Negro-San Felipe.

There are also plans to supply energy to these interconnections: Puerto Pàƒ¡ez-Puerto Carreàƒ±o, Corzo-San Mateo and Cuatricentenario-Cuestecitas.

The plan also will look at a proposal to supply power through interconnections between Cuatricentenario and Cuestecitas, Corzo, and San Mateo and Puerto Paez and Puerto Carreàƒ±o
