The second power link with Poland that will complement the LitPol Link between Alytus and Ełk already in operation is one of the most important and complicated works in the preparations for the operation of the Baltic States’ power systems within synchronous grid of Continental Europe. Both Lithuania and Poland are considering the options of the new line’s route.
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.
