The Lake Line’s transmission capacity will double

The work to upgrade the Lake Line from Oulu to Lappeenranta to a 400-kilovolt transmission line began in the summer and autumn with the planning of environmental impact assessments (EIAs). The first projects to be assessed are the Vaala–Joroinen project and the Rovaniemi–Vaala project further north.

Grid Map helps with terrain work

Fingrid’s Grid Map has been completed. The Grid Map provides basic information about Fingrid’s electricity grids and those of our customers and also serves as a handy tool for taking notes while working in the field.

The EIA values people’s opinions and the environment

The EIA procedure of a transmission line project investigates the project’s impact on people and nature in the area. Residents are asked to provide feedback on transmission line routes, and the terrain is inspected from several points of view.
“We genuinely want to take people and the environment into account and to do things well and in a cooperative spirit. We are constantly improving the flexibility of our EIA process,” says Fingrid’s Land Use Manager, Ilkka Alm.
