Share

Skarta’s power network construction business unit, established in the spring, has grown rapidly through new professionals and won electricity transmission network projects. Skarta plays an important role in the entire renewable energy value chain. From now on, Skarta has also the opportunity to participate in Fingrid’s electrical substation projects, as the company has been granted Qualification B for Fingrid’s supplier register.

“Being accepted into the supplier register is great news for our thriving power network business and proof of our ability to build challenging electricity infrastructure projects.In the past six months, several experienced professionals in the field have joined the team in different locations. With the company’s diverse and strong expertise, the application process for Fingrid’s supplier register went seamlessly,” says Antti Keskinen, Director of Power Network Construction at Skarta.

Skarta plays an important role in the entire renewable energy value chain. With the construction of electrical substations and transmission lines that are part of the power network business, wind farms, for example, can be connected to the national electricity transmission network. The know-how of the new business unit is currently being utilised, for example, in the Karahka and Lumivaara wind farm projects, which cover the construction of more than 30 wind parks in total. These projects are comprehensive Balance of Plant (BoP) projects for Skarta, in which case the company is also responsible for land improvement and foundation works, among others.

“We want to play an active role in solving the ongoing energy transition. With the acceptance into the supplier register, we can now also implement Fingrid’s 110 kV electrical substation projects and be involved in implementing necessary and significant electrical substation investments in the main grid,” says Petteri Luhtala, Electrical Substation Construction Manager of the Power Network Business at Skarta.   

According to Fingrid, wind power production in Finland is currently about 4,000 megawatts. By the end of the year, the production is estimated to be about 5,000 megawatts, and after three years, it is predicted to be almost 10,000 megawatts. According to Fingrid’s development plan, EUR 3 billion will be invested in the main grid over the next ten years. The investments consist of the development of cross-border transmission connections and the main power transmission network within Finland, the connection of new production to the network, and the renewal and basic improvements of the existing network.

Skarta Energy och Tohmajärvi kommun inleder samarbete – Planerar östra Finlands största energiprojekt13.9.2022 11:44:47 EEST | Tiedote

Skarta Energy Oy, del av SkartaNYAB, som genomför rena energilösningar, och Tohmajärvi kommun planerar sol- och vindparker i Tohmajärvi. För detta ändamål har bolaget och kommunen ingått en avsiktsförklaring genom vilket möjligheterna att bygga förnybar energi i Tohmajärvi kartläggs. Genom kartläggningarna utreds byggandet av flera sol- och vindparker samt områden som lämpar sig för byggandet av dem. Parkernas sammanlagda effekt ska vara 60 MW, och om projektet genomförs är detta det största energiprojektet i hela östra Finland. ”Den energi som produceras med hjälp av solkraft och vindkraft är helt förnybar och tillsammans stöder dessa energiformer varandra utmärkt. I det projekt som planeras utnyttjas också Skartas Vierivoima®-lösningar som stärker tillgången på ren energi till ett konkurrenskraftigt pris i regionen. Lösningen möjliggör också en snabb övergång till användning av väte i Tohmajärvi-området när behovet blir aktuellt”, säger Vikke Saarelainen, vice verkställande direktör

Skarta and Tohmajärvi municipality to begin cooperation – Eastern Finland’s largest energy project under planning13.9.2022 10:05:05 EEST | Press release

Clean energy solution provider Skarta Energy Oy and Tohmajärvi municipality are planning solar and wind farms for Tohmajärvi. For this purpose, the company and the municipality have signed a letter of intent to map out the possibilities of renewable energy construction in the Tohmajärvi area. The mapping investigates the construction of several solar and wind parks as well as the areas suitable for their construction. The combined total power of the parks would be 60 MW and, if realised, the project would be the largest energy project in Eastern Finland. “The energy produced by solar and wind power is completely renewable, and together these forms of energy support each other perfectly. The planned project also utilises Skarta’s Near Energy® solutions which increase the availability of competitively priced, clean energy in the area. The solution also enables the Tohmajärvi area to quickly transition to the use of hydrogen when the need becomes relevant,” says Vikke Saarelainen, Executi

Skarta ja Tohmajärven kunta yhteistyöhön – Suunnitelmana Itä-Suomen suurin energiahanke13.9.2022 09:33:41 EEST | Tiedote

Puhtaiden energiaratkaisujen toteuttaja Skarta Energy Oy ja Tohmajärven kunta suunnittelevat aurinko- ja tuulipuistoja Tohmajärvelle. Tätä varten yhtiö ja kunta ovat solmineet aiesopimuksen, jolla kartoitetaan uusiutuvan energian rakentamismahdollisuuksia Tohmajärven alueella. Kartoituksilla selvitetään useampien aurinko- ja tuulivoimapuistojen rakentamista sekä niiden rakentamiseen soveltuvia alueita. Puistojen yhteenlaskettu kokonaisteho olisi 60 MW, ja toteutuessaan hanke olisi koko itäisen Suomen suurin energiahanke. ”Aurinko- ja tuulivoimalla tuotettu energia on täysin uusiutuvaa ja yhdessä nämä energiamuodot tukevat erinomaisesti toisiaan. Suunnitteilla olevassa hankkeessa hyödynnetään myös Skartan Vierivoima®-ratkaisuja, jotka vahvistavat hinnaltaan kilpailukykyisen, puhtaan energian saatavuutta alueella. Ratkaisu mahdollistaa myös Tohmajärven alueen nopean siirtymän vedyn käyttöön sitten, kun tarve tulee ajankohtaiseksi ”, kertoo Skarta Energy Oy:n varatoimitusjohtaja Vikke Saa
