Sales conditions that apply to the electricity supply price list
Electricity transmission is an electricity network service offered by the holder of the distribution network. By electricity transmission is meant the transfer of electricity in the electricity network between different parties in electricity trading. The transmission products stated in this price list include the transmission of electric energy delivered to the seller’s main grid to an electricity usage location within Port of Turku Ltd’s distribution network, in the manner prescribed in the Electricity Market Act.

The customer may choose between the electricity products in the price list, within the limits mentioned in this application guideline. The selected product will be applied for at least one year before the product can be transferred.

A pricing alternative that does not require efficiency measuring can be selected only by customers whose main fuse is 200 A at most.

The basic charge of the products stated in the price list contains a measuring device charge, by which the cost of maintaining the indicator
needed to measure electricity consumption, as well as temporary care, are covered (the device included in the basic charge is mentioned in connection with the basic charge). If other measuring devices have been installed at the electricity usage location, the maintenance of
which is not included in the basic charge for the transmission product, the maintenance of said devices will be separately charged using a measuring device charge from a separate measuring device price list.

Transferring to another electricity product (product switch) requires measuring devices to have been installed in the electricity usage location that can be used to measure the variables forming the basis for invoicing, in a manner approved by the holder of the distribution network.

In case product switching requires changes to the measuring devices, a separate measuring charge will be charged for installation, in accordance with a separate measuring price list.
If the customer does not have a currently valid electricity sales agreement with Port of Turku or another electricity seller, it is the obligation of the local distribution network holder to cut the electricity supply to the electricity usage location in question. The customer may be
temporarily supplied with electricity (e.g. for worksite use) without an accession agreement, for a period of two years at most.

For non-recurring measures required at the beginning of electricity transmission, and other non-recurring measures related to the electricity transmission, service charges will be charged in accordance with the service price list.

The nominal power voltage and frequency in the low voltage network is 230 V 50 Hz., 400V/230V / 50Hz.

Connecting a temporary subscription requires paying a collateral sum to the Port of Turku Ltd’s Finance & Administration department. In the event of a possible payment disturbance, or in the event of damage to equipment belonging to the harbour due to the customer, the harbour
also has the right to use the collateral sum to cover any expenses incurred. The amount of collateral is the same as the accession charge for the subscription type in question.

If the customer buys energy from other energy suppliers, a separate electricity network contract will be prepared for the electricity transmission. The customer will pay the initial costs and balance sheet costs of the transmission service, as well as measuring costs to Port
of Turku Ltd for the aforementioned services of the network operator in accordance with their invoicing.
