Power operator completes ‘strategic’ 400 kV line in southeastern Poland

A new 400 kilovolt (kV) line between Chełm – Lublin System in southeastern Poland has been in operation since the beginning of September, the project’s investor Polish power transmission company Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne (PSE) announced on Thursday (7 September).

As part of the project, which lasted seven years, a new 67-kilometre (km) line was built, alongside the modernisation and expansion of two power stations (Lublin Systemowa and Chełm). In particular, the Chełm station’s expansion included the construction of a 400 kV switchgear and the installation of two new transformer units.

Following the line’s construction, the company carried out operating parameters measurements with a “particular emphasis” on compliance with applicable noise and electromagnetic field emission standards. Voltage and load tests of the line were also performed. 

The construction of the 400 kV Chełm-Lublin Systemowa line was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund under the Infrastructure and Environment Operational Program 2014-2020.
