New partnership for storing renewable energy in Finland

Mine Storage and the Korsnäs Municipality have just announced that they have entered into a land rights agreement to develop a mine storage energy storage facility in the Korsnäs mine located in Ostrobotnia, Finland. The aim is to establish how the Korsnäs mine could be converted into a mine storage to store electricity production from renewables and to support the Finnish transmission grid. The Korsnäs mine was closed in 1973 and is now water-filled. Initial investigations indicate that the mine shows potential to become a mine storage. “We are both trilled and excited about the possibilities of future energy storage in the old mine in our municipality. The mine storage concept is circularity at its best. It brings together old heavy industrial areas with innovative green energy ideas. We have big areas suitable for off-shore wind power, which means that if this project succeeds, it will give both Ostrobotnia and Korsnäs municipality a big boost of “energy” in our efforts to conquer the green transition effectively,” says Christina Båssar, Municipality Director at Korsnäs Municipality, in a press release.
A mine storage transforms a mine into a circular asset by using the mine as a water reservoir and utilizing the height difference and water to create a closed-loop pumped storage hydropower system.
