Existing route corridor is used
The course of the planned 380-kV line from Perleberg to Wolmirstedt will, wherever possible, follow the existing corridor of the 220-kV line through Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt. Exceptions are the subsections from Rochau to Schinne and Klein Möringen to Groß Schwarzlosen. Here, the new construction route runs parallel to the 380-kV line Lubmin-Stendal West and Stendal West-Wolmirstedt. The planned route was subdivided into three sections for approval. Detailed information is available in the publicly disclosed documents in the scope of the planning approval proceedings.
Line Perleberg – Stendal West (section Brandenburg)
The new 380-kV overhead line starts in the eastern city area of Perleberg. The line begins at tower no. 10 at the crossing of the existing 220-kV overhead line Wolmirstedt-Güstrow at Bundesstraße 5 near Spiegelhagen. Along the 220-kV line route, the new 380-kV overhead line should pass the towns of Düpow and Plattenburg in the direction of the Perleberg forest. Through the forest, up to the crossing at the state border with Saxony-Anhalt (at the Elbe), the new line should follow the existing forest aisle, which does not need to be widened. Between Garsedow and Schadebeuster, the 380-kV line reaches the river Elbe and therefore the state border with Saxony-Anhalt. The Elbe crossing towers, which were renovated a few years ago, will still be used. Only the tower peaks will be modified.
Line Perleberg – Stendal West (section Saxony-Anhalt)
Near Losenrade, to the west of the Elbe, the distance to a farm is increased, for the rest the new line runs along the old route in the direction of the south, until it meets the existing 380-kV Lubmin-Stendal West overhead line to the south-east of Seehausen. As both 380-kV lines can run parallel to each other in the future instead of crossing the 220-kV line as they do today, they will be suspended from five towers in a four circuit configuration over a short section.
From Biesehof on, both lines continue in parallel and the planned 380-kV Perleberg-Wolmirstedt line again follows the 220-kV route. Only in the sections between Rochau and Schinne as well as between Klein Möringen and the Stendal West substation, and from there on to Groß Schwarzlosen, the new 380-kV line leaves the existing 220-kV route to run in parallel to the existing Lubmin-Stendal West 380-kV line. From Klein Möringen on, a four-circuit section has to be constructed up to the Stendal West substation for technical reasons.
Line Stendal West – Wolmirstedt (Saxony-Anhalt)
The third section begins from the south side of the Stendal West substation on the territory of Insel. The planned 380-kV line should run to the east of the existing Stendal West-Wolmirstedt 380-kV line in south-easterly direction. From the eastern border of Groß Schwarzlosen, the new line can again follow the route of the existing 220-kV overhead line. In Uchtdorf, the routes split up again in the 220-kV Wolmirstedt-Güstrow line and the 380-kV Stendal West-Wolmirstedt overhead line. The new line should remain bundled with the Stendal West-Wolmirstedt 380-kV overhead line and follow its curve to the south-west.
The end point of the new overhead line is the Wolmirstedt substation.
