The Action implemented the first part of Project of Common Interest (PCI) 4.5.1 which is the interconnection between the Lithuanian and the Polish electricity system at the Lithuanian/Polish border called “LitPol Link”.

The Action's goal was the construction and commissioning of approximately 51 km double circuit 400 kV AC overhead line (OHL) between Alytus (Lithuania) to the Polish border. This consisted of the construction of OHL foundations, in the Lithuanian territory and the construction and commissioning of a 500 MW High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) back-to-back converter station with a 400 kV switchyard in Alytus (Lithuania). There is an 8 single-phase converter station transformers, of which 2 aree spare ones.

The Action paves the way for the commencement of the second phase of the LitPol Link.
