Jarmo Henttinen, substation moderniser

Project Manager Jarmo Henttinen has taken charge of the repair work at several substations that Fingrid has overhauled in recent years, as well as the construction of new substations. The overhauls of the Imatra and Länsisalmi substations, among others, have had a substantial visible impact on nationally significant landscapes.

It is hoped that a national qualification practice will be agreed for the sector.
