Heavy snowfall in Sweden cuts power to thousands

3 Apr 2020 – Heavy wet snow is causing the trees to bend over the lines, says operations manager Petter Södergran on the Vaasa power grid.

During the night and morning, approximately 2700 customers were without electricity in ​​the Vaasa region, most of which are holiday homes.

It is a little tricky with the ice situation and to reach when there is no road connection, says Södergran.

At best, we also clear away trees in different parts of the Vaasa power grid area, trees that are not currently causing disruption but which are seen as a risk.

It has also probably been snowing in the north of Herrfors, but not so much that it would have caused a break, says network manager Peter Nyman.
