The Voivode of Wielkopolska issued a permit for the construction of the second track suspension of the Ostrów-Kromolice power line. The second track will double the transmission capacity of this line, which has been in place since 2007, and allow its full use, reported Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (PSE).
– The launch of the second circuit of the 400 kV line between Ostrów Wielkopolski and Kromolice will allow full use of the network infrastructure already built in order to improve the reliability and working conditions of the transmission and distribution network in Wielkopolska – Voivode in Wielkopolska, Michal Zielinski reported.
PSE reports that construction and assembly work related to the suspension of the line will begin at the end of the third quarter of this year, and electricity will flow through the new route at the end of 2023.
The 400 kV line, which connects Ostrów Wielkopolski with Kromolice near Pozna, is a major link for powering western and northern Poland. Energy is extracted from power generation sources in the northwest of the country and from power stations in Silesia and Pechato.
– The new route will increase the transmission capacity of this line, and therefore the entire high voltage network, which is essential for distributed electricity generation. “The grid is supplied not only with electricity from conventional power plants, but also from wind farms, including offshore wind farms, and solar farms,” said Piotr Strojny, director of the investment program on behalf of PSE.
PSE is simultaneously implementing four linear investments in Greater Poland and expanding and modernizing six power plants. The estimated value of projects in the region exceeds 1.2 billion PLN – we read in the press release.
