New line between Sweden and Finland

The national grid operators in Sweden (Svenska kraftnät) and Finland (Fingrid) have planned the construction of a 400 kV AC power line between Messaure in Sweden and Keminmaa on the Finnish side.

The new line between Sweden and Finland will be of great benefit to the entire Nordic electricity market. It increases security of supply in Finland and integrates the country further into the Nordic electricity system. It also enables us to make better use of balancing power and reserves in both Sweden and Finland.
