In early 2013, foundation works started on the 2.8 km long section of the 380 kV line between Vierraden and Krajnik. On Friday, 23 August 2013, the first circuit was taken into operation. For the construction of the new 2.8 km long line, consisting of eight pylons, 50Hertz worked together with LTB-Leitungsbau GmbH. The project required 280 tonnes of steel, 80 kilometres of conductors and 1,700 cubic metres of concrete. In seven locations, a total volume of 23,000 square metres of water was pumped in nearby ditches to lower the groundwater level for construction.
