Five Tallinn facilities to be equipped with permanent backup power solutions

Five Tallinn facilities to be equipped with permanent backup power solutions

The Tallinn Property Department has finalized a contract with Bergland OÜ to introduce independent backup power systems across five key facilities in Tallinn. This initiative will outfit these locations with stationary diesel generators, securing a continuous electricity supply for the city's emergency response centers.

Deputy Mayor Tiit Terik highlighted the critical nature of ensuring residents' safety and support during crises. "Our recent discussions on crisis preparedness with Ukrainian counterparts reinforced the vital role electricity plays in maintaining essential services. Power availability is crucial for water supply systems and communication devices," Terik explained. "Tallinn aims to bolster its resilience to crises by establishing emergency centers in every district, independent from the main power grid. Having generators in place ensures that vital facilities remain operational during power outages, offering residents access to water, heating, and crucial information."

The generators, to be permanently installed and integrated into the buildings' existing electrical infrastructure, will activate automatically during power failures. Equipped with necessary transition mechanisms, these diesel generators are ready for immediate use upon installation, with capacities tailored to each facility's requirements, ranging from 100 to 400 kVA.

Installation sites include the Iru Care Home, the Põhja-Tallinn District Administration, the Pirita District Administration, the Lasnamäe District Administration, and the Tallinn City Government offices. The project, valued at €993,100 plus VAT, is scheduled for completion by early September, ensuring that these facilities are prepared for any electrical interruptions.

An additional six facilities are queued for similar upgrades, with backup power solutions currently under design for the Nõmme, Kesklinn, Haabersti, Kristiine, and Mustamäe District Administrations, as well as the building on Vabaduse väljak 10.
