ENERGO: Estonia’s Elering builds new infrastructure to ensure smooth departure from Russian system
Estonian transmission system operator (TSO) Elering announced it is assembling three synchronous condenser stations in Estonia to expedite the Baltic countries’ connection to the grid of continental Europe.
The first synchronous condenser is scheduled to be operational in April next year, ERR.ee, the website of Estonian national broadcaster ERR, reported on July 27.
The condensers will ensure the frequency stability in the electricity network, which is now ensured by the off-market operation of Narva power plants and the Russian electricity system.
The construction of the first synchronous condenser at the electrical substation in Luganuse (Pussi Alajaam) is nearing completion, with the station scheduled to be operational in April next year.
