A second power interconnection linking Lithuania with Poland is planned to be built as the Baltic States are preparing for the synchronisation of their electricity systems with the networks of continental Europe. This week the Lithuanian electricity transmission system operator Litgrid announced a public procurement to develop a feasibility study on the future power interconnection route.
Today for the first time in history 60 megawatts of electricity was transmitted from Lithuania to Poland through LitPol Link. This test, as well as other scheduled tests of the new interconnection aim to check whether it is fully prepared to transmit electricity in both directions between Poland and Lithuania.
For the first time electricity flowed through the wires of Lithuanian-Polish interconnection LitPol Link. These first tests of power line stretching from Elk to Alytus aimed to check whether the line is ready for power transmission.
The border crossing part of the power bridge between Poland and Lithuania has been completed. Wires were successfully stretched between the 400kV overhead line pylons located at the opposite sides of the border. The LitPol Link power interconnection works are approaching completion, the link will be operational in three months.
