The operation of this power line has an important role in securing supply with electricity in the North-West part of the country, say the representatives of the company, and it will ensure the growth of the capacity of interconnection of the country. 

The project of the overhead power line LEA 400 kV Oradea –Beckescsaba was initiated in 2006 and starting with 2008 the section Oradea Sud-Nadab was in conservation, as a result of difficulties connected to expropriation procedures.
