By investing in the reliability of our electrical network, we ensure the security and continuity of supply.
As the largest distribution network operator in Finland, Caruna is considered a critical company for the security of supply. Security of supply means the ability to handle disturbances and states of crisis with a minimum amount of special arrangements and damage. We are prepared to maintain our ability to supply electricity on the current supply security level, even during a longer state of crisis. By investing in the reliability of our electrical network, we ensure the security and continuity of supply, particularly during disturbances caused by the climate.
The preparedness specific to the production, distribution and transmission of energy as well as readiness planning, is managed by the Power and District Heat Pool at Finland’s National Emergency Supply Agency. The most pivotal task of the energy economics pool is to bring about, under normal conditions, preparedness to secure the supply of the nation’s energy in an emergency. In addition, it is its task to prepare to lead and realise, during a crisis period, energy maintenance on the basis of plans formulated and tested in advance, in accordance with the assignments and mandates received from the Finnish government.
Along with the activities of the regional pools subordinate to the Power and District Heat Pool of the National Emergency Supply Agency, we are involved in regional preparedness in the ALVAR committee. In addition, we belong to, e.g., the Cooperative Working Group for Disruptions (HÄTY in Finnish) of the Finnish Communications Regulatory Authority and the Critical Infrastructure Disruption Control Room Cooperative Group (Krivat in Finnish).
Many of our customers are also operators classified as ‘maintenance of supply-critical’ by the authorities. We particularly ensure the supply of electricity to these customers during a period of emergency legislation.
