A subsidiary of Enersense International Plc, a provider of zero-emission energy solutions, Enersense PN Oy, which operates in the business area of Power, has won a contract in Fingrid’s public procurement tendering process for the Aurora Line’s Pyhänselkä-Herva share. Aurora Line is the new electricity transmission link between Finland and northern Sweden. The value of the contract is approximately EUR 16 million.

The project for the construction of the 400kV power line won by Enersense is located from the Pyhänselkä substation in Muhos to Ii and is about 80 kilometres long. Construction work will begin in autumn 2022 and the project is expected to be handed over to the client at the end of 2024.

“Aurora Line will increase the transmission capacity between Sweden and Finland by approximately 900 megawatts and contribute to supporting the European Union’s climate objectives and improving the reliability of the electricity system. The project has received EUR 127 million in support from the EU’s Connecting Europe Programme. We are confident in Enersense’s delivery capability in this most important project package of the decade,” says Director Timo Kiiveri from Fingrid.

“We are very pleased that we were selected to carry out this project. This is a good continuation of our long-term cooperation with Fingrid in the implementation of demanding grid projects,” says Joni Parkkinen, Vice President, Power’s Transmission Networks business area at Enersense.

The decision is final after the end of the appeal period in accordance with the Procurement Act.
