50Hertz has submitted the planning application documents for the coastal waters section to the Ministry of Energy, Infrastructure and Digitalization for the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania (EM M-V) project. The plans includes the construction and operation of Hansa PowerBridge interconnector between Germany and Sweden.
The permitting authority is now verifying the documents for completeness.


The ~105 km proposed route crosses the coastal waters, including the German Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) over a distance of about 80 kilometres. In June 2020, 50Hertz submitted the approval applications for the EEZ section to the Stralsund Mining Authority and the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency.


The 300 kV HVDC Hansa PowerBridge will technically enable the transmission of electricity between the planned grid connection points in Hurva (Sweden) and Güstrow (Germany) over the approximately 300-kilometer route.

The project has been divided into four approval sections including: permit of EEZ, Permit section coastal area (MV), approval section Landtrasse (MV), and approval for converter system (MV). Following this, the approval application will be submitted for Landtrasse section.

Next Geosolutions will carry out marine geophysical and geotechnical surveys offshore Sweden.


The project will cost €600 million, which will be shared equally between Germany’s 50Hertz and Sweden’s Svenska kraftnät.
The proposed link is scheduled to go online in 2025 or 2026.
