Nokia wins Fingrid network contract, partners NetNordic as integrator

Tuesday 3 December 2019 | 13:05 CET | News

Nokia said that it has been selected by Fingrid, Finland's national transmission system operator, to build an IP/MPLS network to support the digital transformation of its national electricity grid. The project is being carried out with NetNordic, a long-standing Nokia channel partner.

Fingrid will use the network to operate 120 high-voltage substations and control 14,600km of power transmission across the country. The smart grid is needed to manage the growing adoption of variable, distributed energy resources such as wind, solar and micro-generation using bioenergy.

Solar and wind generation, for example, require a much more agile and automated grid to manage the variable, two-way power flows by automatically ramping and balancing inputs and outputs. This requires a highly reliable, secure communications system to monitor, control, coordinate and manage distributed energy assets.
