Fortum GO

The world needs doers and that is why we participate in the fight against climate change through mobility revolution

Our society is at the verge of disruption that will result from the electrification, connectivity and automation of mobility. We see that autonomous and electric vehicles will influence traffic, reducing pollution and CO2 emissions. Therefore, as a forward-looking company, Fortum wants to be at the forefront of researching and creating sustainable, resource efficient solutions in this field.

What is Fortum GO all about?

We have defined mobility and transportation as a key focus area of the Fortum Innovation and Venturing team. And within this focus area, our Fortum GO team aims to increase resource efficiency by using automation and electric fleet management in logistics.

Fortum GO autonomous driving demonstration

Public technology demonstrations

We will conduct a number of remote and autonomous mobility pilots to explore the potential opportunities and challenges in this landscape with our project members at Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) and Fleetonomy.AI Oy.

Autonomous driving: We are going to showcase the autonomous driving capabilities of our vehicle in early November. Aspiration of this test is to drive autonomously approximate 35 kilometers in the Helsinki city area.

Remote driving: First of our remote-driving demonstrations was organised in Helsinki on June 27. We believe that our demonstration was one of the first tests on the public road in Finland.
