400 kV line for western Poland receives positive environmental decision

The Regional Directorate for Environmental Protection in Szczecin (north Poland) has issued a decision on the environmental conditions for the construction of a 400-kilowatt (kV) Dunowo-Żydowo Kierzkowo-Piła Krzewina line running across western Poland (7 August).

The regional environmental regulator confirmed that the project’s investor, Polish power transmission operator Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (PSE), has met “strict environmental requirements” in the line’s design.

The 400 kV power line will be of significant importance for the safe operation of the northwestern part of the National Power System (Krajowy System Elektroenergetyczny or KSE), PSE said via a press release.

The new power line will pass through 13 municipalities (6 in Wielkopolska: Kaczory, Wysoka, Krajenka, Tarnówka, Złotów, and Okonek; and 7 in West Pomerania: Szczecinek, Biały Bór, Polanów, Bobolice, Tychowo, Świeszyno, and Biesiekierz) and will cover a distance of 171 kilometres (km).

The line will replace a 220 kV line dating back to the 1970s, connecting Dunowo with Piła.

The investment is being carried out according to the adopted schedule. The contractor for the line will be selected in 2024, with the completion of the construction set for 2026.
