A 20kV under-sea cable XHE 49/24 3×120/16 in the lenght of 2000 meters was laid on April 23, 2007 in the region covered by Elektrojug of Dubrovnik, between the islands Šipan and the land.

The previous cable, laid 40 years ago, was damaged last year, causing difficulties in the electric power supply of the Elaphite islands.

The electric power ring around the Elaphite islands is closed again by laying of this cable, which enablesa reliable supply of the islands Koločep, Lopud and Šipan.

The under-sea cable of the same construction was also delivered last year to Elektrajug for connection of the island Lokrum with Dubrovnik, and to Elektra Zadar for the connection of the sections Vinjerac – Seline and Preko – Ošljak.
