The construction of the European priority project, the high voltage power interconnection LitPol Link between Poland and Lithuania is progressing according to the planned timeline. Scheduled to be finished in December 2015, the interconnection aims to close off the so-called Baltic Ring, a network of power connections surrounding the Baltic Sea region, and eliminate the existing “energy islands” in the internal European Union electricity markets. The three Baltic countries - Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia - will be connected to a Continental Europe power grid.

Žilinskio ir Ko UAB, a company engaged in the design and construction of infrastructure objects, today signed the final contract as part of the strategic project of building the LitPol Link power interconnection between Lithuania and Poland.
