Upgrading Umea’s power grid
Umeå's growth, located in the north-east of Sweden, results in strong demands on a sustainable and reliable power grid. To address this need, the grid owner, Umea Energi Elnat AB, meets this with the project "Spänningshöjning", a comprehensive upgrade of the power network in the region during the period 2015 to 2024.
After having already built two substations, the trust is renewed and the Omexom teams in Sweden are contributing to this project by building a new additional 170/12 kV substation (Mariehem) and upgrading the existing 170kV switchgear in the Ersboda substation.
Both stations are on a turnkey contract, where Omexom is responsible for everything from construction, delivery of equipment, ground and construction work to installation, testing and commissioning.
