Fingrid’s customer organisations are working to implement the requirements of the EU network code on electricity emergency and restoration. The 24-hour operability requirement and automatic under-frequency load shedding system must be implemented by December 2022.
The President of the Republic of Finland bestowed the title of Professor on Ritva Hirvonen, Fingrid’s Planning Manager, on 19 December 2019. The honorary title of Professor is awarded by the state in recognition of talented practitioners of the sciences and arts.
The Network Code for Emergency and Restoration (NC ER) specifies the common requirements for handling emergency, blackout and restoration states in the power system. NC ER harmonises the operation of power systems throughout the EU and with Third Countries.
