VEO and Puhuri partnership continues

Puhuri Oy, a Finnish wind power company, has engaged VEO as a partner in a number of wind farm projects. Initially, Puhuri and VEO entered into an agreement for the electrification of two wind farm substations. The delivery schedule for the projects was tight, but VEO completed the work successfully. Now VEO is supplying a substation for a third wind farm being constructed by Puhuri.

The partners started working together in 2011 and the first two wind farm substations were completed in 2012. The Ristivuori wind farm has six turbines, and the Kopsa 1 wind farm has seven turbines. VEO’s third electrification project will be on a wind farm located in Raahe, where eight turbines will be erected in summer 2014.

The delivery schedule for the projects was tight, but VEO completed the work successfully

For all three wind farms, VEO has delivered its own modular substation concept, which also includes VEO´s VEKE medium voltage switchgear. The switchgear, which VEO has developed and fine-tuned to perfection during the past year, is the most important element of electricity distribution.

“The Nordic countries are modernising their electricity network and in Finland, too, overhead lines are being taken underground. This is creating demand for VEKE,” concludes Hiironniemi.
