Ukrenergo modernises power Ukraine-Poland transmission line

The Ukrainian and Polish power system operators, Ukrenergo and Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (PSE) have completed the modernisation of a transmission line connecting both countries, the operators announced on 2 May.

The new interstate power interconnector has been operational since 27 April 2023 and completed three days in trial mode. Its total length reaches almost 400 kilometres (km), with more than 70 per cent of it passing through Ukraine.

The line is connected to the trunk network through an open switchgear at one of the Ukrainian power facilities. The main scope of the works was performed in this node, so that the electricity generated by the Ukrainian power system could be converted to the European voltage of 400 kV and transmitted to Europe, Ukrenergo said.

“Ukraine’s movement towards the European Union is not only an ambition, but also concrete results. We continue successful sectoral integration in the EU. An additional powerful interconnector increases our export and import capabilities. Due to the sale of electricity, we will accumulate resources for energy sector restoration before the new heating season. If necessary, we will activate imports and receive emergency assistance from our neighbours. Ukrainians will have light despite enemy missile and drone attacks,” Denys Shmyhal, Prime Minister of Ukraine said.

The total cost of the project amounted to 350 million Ukrainian hryvnia (8.5 million euros). A number of the necessary equipment was provided free of charge by Poland, Ukrenergo said.

“It was a complex but mutually beneficial project that we implemented in cooperation with our European colleagues. It is important both for Ukraine and for European energy security. The line will strengthen the connections between the Ukrainian and European power systems. If the needs are different, we will be able to import electricity from Europe. This line constitutes an additional element of European energy security and contributes to the development of a stable power grid in Ukraine,” Volodymyr Kudrytskyi, Chairman of the Management Board at Ukrenergo said.
