Coordinating construction projects

Construction project coordination is needed if the project crosses a protected zone of an electrical system or requires the electrical network to be relocated. Please submit the technical solution (construction project, plan) to Elektrilevi for approval before the building permit/notification procedure in the Building Register. When preparing a construction project, please follow the applicable laws, our technical inspection documents and the design task.

Coordinating projects

Construction project coordination is needed if the planned buildings or communications:

  • Cross the protected zone of an electrical system, which is the land, airspace or water that surrounds an electrical system and where usage limitations apply to ensure the safety of the electrical system
  • Are located within the protected zone
  • Require a part of the electrical network (an overhead line, cable line, substation, etc) to be relocated. In such cases an application to rebuild the network is required, which can be submitted here. Then it must be submitted separately for approval

NB! In case of works taking place in Tallinn’s street light protection zone, please send your project in for further approval. [email protected].

The data will be forwarded within 10 business days
