A significant amount of new wind power is planned for the Southern Ostrobothnia region of Finland. To further transfer electricity generated by wind farms, Fingrid is expanding and renewing substation equipment at the Alajärvi substation, to which nearly 2 GW of new production capacity is expected to be connected in the coming years.
Fingrid and TMV Service signed a contract in April 2021 for the expansion and refurbishment of the Alajärvi substation.
The two 400 MVA 400/120/21 kV power transformers for the station will be supplied by the Italian-based Tamini Transformatori S.r.l. in the fall of 2022 since the electrical equipment installations are scheduled for 2022.The signed contract also allows for the delivery of eight optional power transformers in 2022–2025. The purpose of the eight optional power transformers is to prepare for the several pending wind power projects across Finland.
