He said there are already candidates for the position, without naming them.

"I proposed the idea to create a special coordinator for the synchronization project. We call it Mr. Synchronization," Nauseda told a joint press conference with his Estonian counterpart Kersti Kaljulaid.

Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia plan to synchronize their grids with continental Europe and desynchronize from the post-Soviet IPS/UPS system, known as the BRELL ring, by 2025, thus reducing their dependence on Russia.

Following long internal disputes, the Baltic states confirmed last year that synchronization with Western Europe will take place via Poland.
