From Bertikow in Brandenburg to Pasewalk in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, a new 380kV connection will be built
The procedure for a 380kV power line from Bertikow in Brandenburg to Pasewalk in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, which would help integrate additional renewables into the grid, has been completed by Germany’s Federal Network Agency BNetzA.
According to BNetzA, the power line’s route and the decommissioning of the current line are now set.
“The determination of the path of the power line from Bertikow to Pasewalk is a further step towards the realization of the transmission grid expansion,” stated BNetzA president Jochen Homann (pictured).
“The initiative contributes to the development of a long-term power grid and the integration of renewables into our energy system.”
The new power line is based on the current 220kV route north of Bertikow and south of Pasewalk, according to the agency.
Between the two will be a stretch that runs west of Highway 20.
The present line will be decommissioned soon, while the replacement line is scheduled to open in 2023.
