Maintaining of peak load power shifts to winter period

At the beginning of December the condensing plants participating in the maintaining of peak load power are shifted over to the starting readiness of a maximum of 12 hours.The arrangement comprises three power plants: Kristiina 1, Mussalo 2 and Vaskiluoto 3. Their combined capacity yields 600 MW.   The Power Reserve Act obliges the peak load power capacity to be provided to the electricity market to secure the electricity supply in Finland. Fingrid can also start the above mentioned capacity in order to maintain the power balance. In the previous winter period, the peak load power capacity was not used at all.   Further information: Anders Lundberg tel. +358 30 395 4171
