Thank god it’s Monday. This must have been the thought of my boss looking for someone going to Estonia as soon as possible. I got the permission from the project, booked flight and hotel and the next morning, I was on my way to Tallinn and Rakvere later that night, going even more east. The converter station site had an outage for two days (i.e. it’s switched off completely for maintenance reasons) and the customer wanted to get some things done. We were there to change some thyristors and fibre optics, visual checks of the three valve towers included. The job went smooth and they brought the link back into operation Thursday night.
Rakvere itself didn’t have that much to offer. The Aqva Spa Hotel was the top thing to see or do, followed by, yeah, not much. The castle maybe – allow one or two hours, depending on how deep into detail you wanna go. A few bars in the “city centre” which would be okay for that one or another night out. That’s about it! Thus, time to head back to Tallinn and home then.
