Several investments over the years

Although the Suomenoja power plant has been in production since 1977, several investments have been made over the years. At the moment the plant consists of five different units.

The latest unit investment was a 40 MW heat pump which reduced CO2 emissions in the area by 15 %. Furthermore, an additional 40 MW heat pump is currently under construction and will be commissioned in 2021, bringing the total number of heat pumps to three.

The plant also has a new heat accumulator that can store about 800 MWh of heat energy. The plant is fueled by coal and natural gas.
