The modifications include an increase in voltage to 500kV from 220kV, and a reduction in length to 145km from 160km.

Engie Energía Chile and Spain's Red Eléctrica also form the consortium TEN, which is building a 600km, 2x500kV transmission line that will connect the SING with Chile's central SIC power grid.
