“LitPol Link”, which was launched 2015, is the first interconnection between the Baltic and Western European electricity infrastructures. The powerful electricity interconnection with Poland opens up the possibility of synchronous operation with the energy systems of other Western European countries and allows the development of a single European electricity market.
The “LitPol Link” interconnection was built by Litgrid, the Lithuanian electricity transmission system operator, and PSE, the Polish electricity grid operator. During the implementation of this strategic project, the technical design of the interconnection was completed and construction work intensively carried out in 2014-2015, also further 11 smaller network projects have been implemented.
