NordBalt to provide more energy security for 6m people in Baltics

Two months remain until the completion of the biggest joint Swedish and Lithuanian project NordBalt. In December the electricity produced in Scandinavia will be transmitted directly to Lithuania for the first time in history. King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden along with the President of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaitė evaluated the NordBalt implementation progress while visiting the construction site of the NordBalt high voltage direct current (HVDC) converter station in Klaipėda.
