CMS has helped Polish power transmission system operator PSE negotiate a cooperation agreement with Lithuanian transmission system operator Litgrid AB regarding the the construction of Harmony Link, a new submarine connection between the two countries.
As previously reported by CEE Legal Matters, Eversheds Sutherland Wierzbowski advised Litgrid AB on the agreement. According to CMS, "the purpose of the project is to allow the synchronization of the power system of the Baltic States with the system of continental Europe, as well as to create new opportunities for trade in the common European power market and to increase energy security in the region."
CMS's team was led by Partner Agnieszka Skorupinska, working with Partner Tomasz Minkiewicz. The team also included Counsel Michał Andruszkiewicz, Associates Hubert Wisniewski and Wojciech Szopinski and Lawyers Karol Jaworecki and Pawel Ura.
