Fortum in Finland

Fortum is a leading energy company in Finland.

Our diverse electricity and heat production portfolio in Finland is largely based on carbon dioxide-free production forms. We also sell electricity, heat and other energy-related services to households and business customers.

All the electricity we sell to consumers in Finland is 100% renewable energy, produced by either hydro or wind power. Fortum also produces district heating and cooling, which it sells to industrial and private customers. Additionally, the company sells various energy production-related expert services to other energy companies and to energy-intensive industry.

Fortum’s electricity production capacity in 2015 in Finland was 3,815 MW, most of it carbon dioxide-free hydro and nuclear power. Our 13 fully-owned hydropower plants are located in the Oulujoki and Vuoksi water systems. Additionally, we have a stake in Kemijoki Oy, and we are responsible for operating its 20 hydropower plants. We own a 997 MW nuclear power plant in Loviisa, and we are a co-owner in the Olkiluoto nuclear power plant. In addition to hydro and nuclear power, we own three combined heat and power (CHP) plants in Finland: in Espoo, Joensuu and Järvenpää. We are a co-owner in Turun Seudun Energiantuotanto Oy (TSE), which owns the Naantali power plant. Our heat production capacity in 2015 was 1,974 MW. Furthermore, Fortum and TVO jointly own a 565 MW Meri-Pori coal power plant in Pori.

We have some 600,000 electricity sales customers in Finland. In cities of Espoo, Kauniainen ja Kirkkonummi we supply district heating to some 200,000 households and in the Joensuu region to 42,000 households. In Järvenpää and Tuusula we serve approximately 33,000 households. The Naantali CHP plant supplies district heating to some 200,000 households in the Turku region as well as electricity and steam to industrial customers.

We utilise a diverse and flexible mix of energy sources in heat production, and we are increasing the use of renewable fuels. We are continuously developing new energy-efficient solutions. In open district heating, for example, the heat generated by customers, like data centres or hospitals, is used in the district heating network. We have launched a circular economy pilot project in which we are developing a biofuel from a horse manure and bedding mixture for use in energy production and, at the same time, offering a new service concept for horse stables.

Finland is a forerunner in the adoption of smart electricity and heat meters measuring hourly consumption. This enables new types of energy services, like Fortum Fiksu, which uses hourly-based wholesale (Nord Pool) pricing.

We are promoting e-mobility in Finland and in other Nordic countries. Fortum Charge & Drive is the market’s leading system for electric vehicle charging stations. Fortum’s network of more than 500 charging stations is the most extensive in the Nordic countries.

Fortum’s headquarters are in Espoo, Finland. We have about 2,000 employees in Finland.
