Payment issues halt Russian power exports to Finland

(Montel) Rao Nordic will halt power imports from Russia to Finland from Saturday due to problems receiving payments for the electricity sold to the market, the cross-border trading operator said on Friday.

The Finland-based firm is a subsidiary of Russian energy giant Inter Rao, although it is not directly subject to Western sanctions over Russia’s war in Ukraine. However, its 51% owned Lithuanian subsidiary Inter Rao Lietuva has been penalised.

Normally, Rao Nordic’s trading volume has varied between 0-970 MWh/h. Trading is intended to continue when problems with payments have been resolved, it said.

A Rao Nordic spokesperson was not immediately available to comment when contacted by Montel.

Electricity imports from Russia covered 10% of Finnish power demand last year.

Finnish power prices could jump 30% if Russia power imports are permanently cut, according to consultancy Volue.
