Caverion has signed a contract with Pori Energia Sähköverkot Oy on the delivery of a new 110/20 kV substation to the neighbourhood of Kaanaa in the city of Pori in Finland.

The design work for the substation will begin in March 2015 and the new substation will be completed in the autumn 2016.

“Renewal of the Kaanaa substation is the largest individual investment of Pori Energia Sähköverkot for this year.

The renovated substation meets the developing needs of living and industry also in decades to come,” says Pekka Ohrakämmen, Managing Director of Pori Energia Sähköverkot.
