In order to meet with the increasing electricity demands, Enemalta is continuously strengthening the network by installing additional cables.
During the past weeks a new 11kV cable was laid between Mosta and the housing area of Ħal Lija which once commissioned will serve to strengthen the electricity supply for thousands of customers in the area.
Due to the distance between Mosta and Ħal Lija, the cable was attached through a number of other cable joints along the route, using jointing technique in accordance with the manufacturer’s technical recommendations.
Part of the cable was routed through an existing Enemalta tunnel thus avoiding the need of digging up the roads.
Residents of Mosta, H’Attard, Ħal Lija, Iklin, Naxxar, B’Kara and even Ibraġ will benefit from the strengthen of the energy distribution system provided by this investment.
