Under the 2012 and 2013 NDPs, Open Grid Europe will build a loop line from the Open Grid Europe/bayernets station at Forchheim to the station in Finsing.
The new 74 km pipeline will have a diameter of 1,000 millimetres and be designed for a pressure of 100 bar.
The regional planning procedure (ROV) has been completed. The planning permission procedure (PFV) is well underway since Mai 2016.
Public consideration of the project is scheduled for February 2017. Planning permission is estimated for August 2017. Commissioning is scheduled for December 2018.
