With some 130 hydro power plants in Sweden Fortum is not only one of the largest operators, it also gives us the opportunity to make our hydro contribute to a cleaner world. Even with some power plants a hundred years old, hydro power's contribution to the emerging fully renewable energy system is crucial. In order to balance its energy contribution to the system, the local environmental effects and the global environmental benefits, Fortum takes perspective based on the whole river system rather than individual plants.
Fortum is co-owner of the Swedish nuclear power plants Oskarshamn and Forsmark.
Fortum has a minority ownership in its Nordic wind power portfolio serving as long-term asset manager. In Sweden the portfolio consists of wind power park Solberg.
Fortum is the largest electricity retail company in Sweden with 40 percent of our 2.4 million Nordic customers.
