Planning criteria

Planning of extra-high-voltage overhead power lines is subject to strict criteria. In the interest of a solution amenable to all parties, 50Hertz Transmission GmbH looks to establish contact with municipalities, public authorities, citizens and associations and welcomes a constructive dialogue.

A responsible approach to people and nature

Additional laws and regulations guarantee the protection of people and nature. For example, they stipulate the maximum permissible values for electromagnetic and electric fields, or specify how the European Union Flora Fauna Habitat Directive is to be applied, and which measures may be carried out in nature conservation areas and to what extent. Generally, the responsible protection of people and nature during grid-extension projects is of high priority to 50Hertz.

Dialogue with stakeholders

A 380-kV extra-high voltage overhead line will inevitably affect the space in which it is built. It is up to the transmission system operator to keep these effects to a minimum. In the interest of a solution amenable to all parties, 50Hertz looks to establish contact with municipalities, public authorities, citizens and associations, and welcomes a constructive dialogue.
