Maintaining of peak load power shifting to winter period

The condensing power plants participating in the maintaining of peak load power are shifted over to the starting readiness of a maximum of 12 hours at the beginning of December. By virtue of the separate Power Reserve Act which secures the security of supply of electricity in Finland, the peak load power capacity is offered to the electricity market.  Additionally, Fingrid can start the production capacity in question in order to maintain the power balance. The arrangement covers the power plants Kristiina 1, Mussalo 2 and Vaskiluoto 3, with a total capacity of 600 MW. In the previous winter period, the peak load power capacity was not used at all. The winter period will extend to the end of February.
