Quiet revolution in power grids in Poland

In recent years, the growth potential of the power construction market has been generally related to large power generation units. However, as plenty of large projects have been abandoned, distribution and transmission lines appear to be the driving engine behind the growth of the power construction sector. 2012 was yet another year marked by growth in capital expenditure on the distribution network as it topped PLN 6.3bn (€1.5bn). Its value is expected to continue to rise in the coming years.
It is estimated that the national power system (KSE) urgently needs more than 2,000 km of transmission lines; given the average cost of PLN 5m (€1.2m) per km, the total capital expenditure on major projects should amount to PLN 10bn. There are approx. 13,000 km transmission lines in Poland, while distribution lines span more than 760,000 km. Network upgrade projects at facilities dating back more than 30 years which need to be replaced will cost around PLN 55bn (€13.1bn) to implement in the coming years.
