We are primarily tasked with providing power transmission services, system services and facilitating the energy market. Our core tasks follow from our appointment as grid operator under the Dutch 'Elektriciteitswet' (E-wet) and the German 'Energiewirtschaftsgesetz' (EnWG).
TenneT is planning a new 380 kV line between the Ganderkesee and St. Hülfe bei Diepholz transformer substations
About the project
On March 31, 2016, the Lower Saxony road construction and transportation authority (NLStBV) issued planning approval for the project. The new line is 61 kilometres long, according to the planning approval. Roughly 18 kilometres of this consist of a total of four underground cable sections. The approved line will close an important gap in the electricity grid between the Ems and the Elbe.
