Press release 11 November 2022 at 10:30 a.m.

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 for the construction of the Framnäs substation, located in Kirkkonummi, in Fingrid's public procurement tendering. The value of the contract is approximately EUR 3.5 million.

“The new substation at Framnäs is more important than its size for us and especially for our customers. It strengthens the grid’s connections and enables an increase in electricity consumption in the Caruna Espoo region. Microsoft is planning a data centre complex for the region whose electricity supply is ensured by the station and whose waste heat Fortum is to use as carbon-neutral district heating in Espoo. The switchgear is implemented using climate-friendly SF6-free technology, which fits well in the same theme. We have excellent experiences working with Enersense and are delighted to have them as a partner in the project,” says Daniel Kuosa, Fingrid's Construction Manager.

For Enersense, the project is a great continuum in substation projects utilising SF6-free technology to improve environmental friendliness. Enersense’s ongoing implementation in Fingrid's Luukkala substation project utilises similar SF6-free technology. SF6 is a powerful greenhouse gas that has been used as main insulation in high-voltage switchgear units and instruments.

“Enersense's strategy is to play a key role in implementing zero-emission projects on the road towards an environmentally friendly society. It is great that we get to implement this project, which also enables us to apply new substation technology to practice,” says Joni Parkkinen, Vice President, Transmission Networks business area at Enersense.

The decision shall be legal after the end of the appeal period under the Act on Public Procurement and Concession Contracts.
