LitPol Link electricity connection

By 2015 Lithuania aims to implement a strategic electricity project: to construct a power link with the neighbouring Poland (LitPol Link), which will connect the Baltic States‘ power infrastructure with that of Western Europe for the first time.

The construction of this project of historical significance will start in Alytus and Lazdijai districts at the beginning of 2014. In the future, this power “highway“ will connect the national power system with the European one. The powerful link with Poland will open opportunities for Lithuania for synchronous operation with the energy systems of other West European countries in developing the European market for electricity.
 
The LitPol Link is the joint project of Litgrid and PSE, a Polish power grid operator. Currently the designing works are in progress, to be followed by intensive construction works in 2014 and 2015. The start of operation of the 500 MW Lithuanian – Polish power link is scheduled for the end of 2015.
