Bi-directional use of Fingrid’s Russian connections not topical

Fingrid offers capacity on the 400 kV transmission connections from Russia for import purposes. The commercial capacity of the cross-border connections is 1,300 megawatts (MW) in one-way only.   The Russian parties have been interested in importing electricity from Finland. The TSOs have analysed preliminarily how the present connection could be converted partly into a two-way link. However, the Russian TSO has informed Fingrid that development of a two-way operation is not a topical issue in the present situation.   Further information:
