A delegation of the Israeli and Cypriot Ministries of Energy, the Israeli and Cypriot energy regulatory authorities, and the Israeli and Cypriot transmission system operators (TSOs) took part in the coordination meeting.

The EuroAsia Interconnector is a multi-terminal high-voltage, direct current scheme which will comprise three converter stations with sea electrodes, interconnected by cables.

The project is set to end the energy isolation of Cyprus as it is the last EU member state which remains fully isolated without any electricity or gas interconnections.
