Scheduled maintenance on NordBalt power link starts in Lithuania

BC, Vilnius, 26.10.2020.Print version
Annual scheduled maintenance on the NordBalt power interconnection between Lithuania and Sweden is starting in Klaipeda on Monday.

The converter station in Klaipeda will be down until November 2 for maintenance of its converter, control and cooling systems and open switchyard, and detection and fixing of defects. 


Litgrid, the power transmission system operator, has said the maintenance shutdown is necessary for the reliability of the 700-megawatt interconnection. 

The supply of electricity to Lithuanian consumers will be ensured by domestic power plants and other interconnections with neighboring countries.

The last time NordBalt underwent scheduled maintenance was in September 2019. 

The 550-million-euro NordBalt project was carried out by Litgrid and Svenska Kraftnat. The 450-kilometer power link was launched in February 2016.
