“Possible underground cabling corridors published”
Grid operators TenneT and TransnetBW published a variety of updated route suggestions to lay direct current power lines from Germany’s windy north to the industrial south, after protests against overhead lines had forced the companies to revise original designs. “We plan SuedLink purely as an underground connection. That is the wish of citizens and the government has paved the way accordingly,” said Lex Hartmann, member of the board of management at TenneT. Before the official application process, the plans will be discussed with the public until mid-November to “optimise the planning”, say the companies in a press release. According to the release, the plan to have SuedLink finished in 2025 is “an ambitious schedule”.
