Upgrade of the 110 kV substation in Meltaus

Fingrid Oyj standardized the equipment at the power station in Meltaus, Rovaniemi, built at the end of the 70s. The station building and area was also renewed. VEO Oy was the main contractor for the project. The project, which improved the reliability of the distribution of electricity in Lapland, was completed by the end of 2014.

The partnership with Fingrid Oyj continues in 2015 with the extension of a power station in Keminmaa.

 

The upgrade of the 110 kV power station in Meltaus included replacements of necessary primary equipment
(circuit breakers, disconnectors, measurement transformers and busbar earthing switches) and station automation.
The structures of the station building and the surrounding area were also restored to live up to current standards.
In Fingrid’s supplier evaluation, VEO got top scores. The work was conducted according to special security
measures, on time and within budget, with no unplanned downtime. The partnership with Fingrid Oyj continues in 2015 with the extension of a power station in Keminmaa.
