The explosion at the Nord Stream could damage the Swedish-Polish cable

According to the company, one of the explosions took place at a distance of about 500 meters from the Swedish-Polish high-voltage line. “We do not know how strong the underwater detonation was. To make sure everything is fine with our cable, we will take measurements next week,” SVT Per Kvarnefalk from Svenska Kraftnat told Sweden.

SwePol Link is currently out of service due to a scheduled inspection, hence it is not known what the condition of the section that crosses the Nord Stream north-east of Bornholm is unknown.

The co-owner of the 450 kV cable leading from Karlshamn in southern Sweden to the vicinity of Słupsk is Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne. The line allows both countries to transmit electricity to each other when there is a power shortage in one of the countries.
