Technical solutions provider Caverion has been contracted by Finland’s national electricity transmission grid operator Fingrid to renew its power lines in the Northern Ostrobothnia region of the country.

The contract is worth approximately €7m and is expected to be completed by late 2024.

Caverion Industry division head Elina Engman said: “As a strong player in the energy sector, Caverion takes part in the construction of electricity generation infrastructure and enables the ongoing energy transition in a multifaceted way.

“Our power line construction experts continue the close cooperation with Fingrid. We are very happy and proud that our customer is entrusting us with these projects.”

The scope of the project involves the renewal of roughly 27km of a 110kV power line between the municipalities of Siikajoki and Liminka.

Additionally, a new 10km-long 2x 110kV power line will be constructed. This is expected to provide increased transmission capacity and enhanced network operating reliability in the region.

Fingrid Oyj project manager Rami Isomäki said: “Finland’s extensive wind power investments demand a large capacity from the national grid.

“Some of the power lines need to be renewed, and new ones have to be built. In order to strengthen the power line starting from the Siikajoki substation, that section will be renewed with a double-strength power line and the old wooden columns replaced with new steel columns.”
