The cross-border electricity transmission line between Hungary and Slovenia linking the electricity grids of the two countries came online on Thursday.
Transmission operator Mavir said Slovenia was the last of Hungary’s neighbours to link up with its grid. It will be incorporated into the capacity calculation process from July 6.
Slovenia carried out the construction work for the last stretch of the 400 kV line between Cirkovce and Heviz on its side of the border between August 2020 and June 2022. The Hungary-Slovenia border can now become part of the European coupling projects for day ahead (SDAC) and intraday (SIDC) timeframe, Mavir said.
The European Union contributed to the financing of the project.
