Backup power at the Värtsilä border guard station
Funded by Euregio Karelia Neighbourhood Programme 2001-2006
Objective of the project
Of the tasks assigned to the Finnish Border Guard in the Northern Karelia region, the most important tasks will be completed at the Värtsilä border guard station and the Niirala border crossing point. Functional backup power was required in order to ensure that tasks could be performed in all conditions. The goal of the project was to ensure an uninterrupted electricity supply and therefore the functionality of data communication and the most significant terminal equipment between the command location and the border guard station in exceptional conditions.
• purchasing of electricity power source and UPS equipment, its installation • electrical installation work and documentation
The backup power for the Värtsilä border guard station was implemented by purchasing a suitable power source (143kVA) and UPS equipment (12kVA) and the necessary electrical installation work and documentation in order to adopt the system. As a result of the completed investments, the command location and border guard station are now able to function during power outages under normal readiness conditions and the power supply is now ensured under exceptional conditions.
