      Press release 17 June 2022 at 3:35 p.m.

      Enersense PN Oy, a subsidiary within the Power segment of Enersense International Plc, a provider of zero-emission energy solutions, has won the bidding process for building Elenia's new electricity transmission connection. The contract for building the 110 kV power line, won by Enersense, is located in the municipalities of Alajärvi and Perho in the region of Ostrobothnia.

      The new power line will be approximately 24 kilometres long, and it will enable wind power to be connected to the electricity network in the region. The construction will start in autumn 2022, and the aim is to hand over the project to the client at the end of 2023.

      "We are very pleased that we were selected to carry out the contract. This project strengthens our position in the construction of high-voltage electricity networks, while enabling zero-emission generation to be connected to the network," says Joni Parkkinen, Vice President of Transmission Networks in Enersense's Power segment.

      "The green transition has significantly accelerated the construction of wind power in Finland, and this trend continues. To make the most out of zero-emission electricity generation, we need effective solutions for electricity network construction. Our partnership with Enersense in building this important power line advances Elenia's goal to promote the fossil-free electrification of society as planned," says Antti Kiviranta, project manager at Elenia.

      To be effective, an energy system needs a smart electricity network and, regarding its development, the increased use of wind and solar power requires effective technological solutions. Currently, roughly a fifth of Finland's entire wind power generation has already been connected to Elenia's electricity network.
