The Action contributes to the implementation of the Project of Common Interest (PCI) 3.8.1. The objective of the Action is the construction of an approximately 100 km long overhead transmission line on the territory of Bulgaria between Dobrudja and Burgas. The power capacity of this line will be 1500 MW at a voltage of 400 kV. This Action builds upon the preparatory studies financed under CEF Action 3.8.1-0030-BG-S-M-14.

The Action is composed of: the construction works of the line; the construction works and the acceptance tests of the facilities for the connection of the newly built line to the existing electricity grid; the supervision of these construction works; and activities for visibility, communication and transparency.
