Operational risks

Operational risks: risks connected with NTG malfunction
The Terna Group's operations are exposed to the risk of unexpected service interruptions caused by external events that are beyond Terna's control, such as accidents, defects or breakdowns involving control systems or other equipment, deteriorating plant performance, natural disasters, terrorist attacks and other extraordinary events of this kind. Repairs to the sections of the NTG owned by the Group and any claims for compensation by third parties as a result of such events could, in principle, give rise to charges if the Group is found be responsible. Specific insurance cover has been arranged to mitigate the effect of operational risks.
