Polish grid operator PSE signed an agreement with German counterpart 50 Hertz on Thursday to upgrade the cross-border interconnector between Krajnik and Vierraden 220kv to 380kv by 2014.
"This is an important step in increasing the integration of the Polish energy grid to the European electricity market," a spokesman for PSE told ICIS Heren.
Both Polish-Germany interconnectors are currently blocked by flows of German wind power. The TSOs have said that they are looking to install phase shifters across the Polish-German border to reduce loop flows, which were preventing Poland importing power from Germany (see EDEM 9 March 2009). Work on the first interconnector is estimated to finish by 2013 and on the second by 2014.
Further, the TSOs are planning on building a third interconnector with capacity to be confirmed. PSE previously told ICIS Heren that it could have capacity upto 1GW (see EDEM 29 September 2009).
