The largest electrical construction sites in Estonia have been Kiisa Emergency backup power station, Jõhvi-Ida 35/6 kV substation, the installation of a 450kV land cable for the Estonian-Finnish Estlink 2 cable, the high and medium-voltage work at the Iru power plant’s WTE unit, the reconstruction of the Keila 110kV substation, construction of the Kiisa substation 10kV, 110kV, 330kV connection points and the Aruküla 330/110/20kV substation, replacement of the Ülemiste junction’s 110kV overhead line with a ground cable, and electrical work for Enefit-280 and Ämari Air Base. In Lithuania in 2015 was completed the NORDBALT HVDC Connection – Klaipeda station.
Work that should be highlighted are also the installation of pipeline using directional drilling, with a good example being laying water pipeline for the pumping station at Tondi street 90 and reconstruction of the pressurized collector for Sindi-Pärnu. Other important works in this field were the construction of water and sewerage utility lines of Vääna-Jõesuu, Matsalu sub-basin, Sillamäe and Kehra city, extensions of water and sewerage lines in the town of Pärnu and Valga, construction on the Aia Street promenade of the Narva-Jõesuu beach area, including design and construction of the street lighting and design and construction work for the renovation and expansion of the Narva-Jõesuu public water supply and sewerage pipelines. In Latvia, Merko has accomplished infrastructure works of Mežaparks area and Augusta Deglava Street dumps technical design, supervision and construction in Riga and in Lithuania extension of water supply and waste water networks in Avižieniai Subdistrict.
