The Polish grid operator, Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne S.A. (PSE S.A.) has commissioned SPIE to construct a 400 kV line in the northern regions of Pomorze and Kujawy. The new power line will extend from Grudziądz through Pelplin to Gdańsk Przyjaźń Substation (near Gdańsk), and is scheduled to be completed by mid-2019. The new 120-kilometer-long power line will ensure the security of electricity supply in the two regions, currently provided by the southern part of the country. For the moment, power is only transported via a 220 kV line.
The new line crosses the areas, which are the nesting grounds of many types of birds. SPIE therefore sought to ensure that the impacts of the enterprise on the areas designated as conservation areas would remain minimal. “In addition to the two-year environmental impact assessment and the compilation of a comprehensive environmental impact report, we have collaborated closely with environmental organisations and regional environmental protection authorities. This helped us to reduce the risk of bird collisions”, explains Monika Szymczuk, Project Director at SPIE. “In addition, we have held numerous discussions with the municipalities concerned and local residents to ensure full transparency about the task.”
