Arteche has completed the tests of the remote control system of Itxaso's substation, a 400kV substation important for the stability of the power grid and for ensuring the continuity of the electrical supply.

In view of the situation caused by the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, Arteche has adopted strict measures to guarantee the health of its technicians, who have gone to REE's facilities, and to ensure the service to the Spanish electricity operator.
