Electricity is produced in power plants and transported to businesses and homes through the main transmission system and local distribution networks. Recent storms have brought to light the vulnerability of the ageing power network and society’s demands for reliable electricity distribution.
The power companies have initiated large-scale renovations of the power networks, which will be completed in the coming years. By building power networks that are more resistant to extreme weather and demanding conditions, we can also ensure that society maintains its operating capacity.
Reka Cables’ medium- and high-voltage cables enable the transfer of power networks underground. This has proven to be a reliable method of avoiding any power failures caused by storms. In Finland, medium- and high-voltage cables are mainly used to build weather-resistant networks and to improve the reliability of networks.
