Today, Fortum has completed the sale of its 100% interest in Regional Power Generators Limited (RPG) to Centrica for close to € 60 million. RPG owns and operates the 240 MW Glanford Brigg combined-cycle gas-fired power station in Brigg, Lincolnshire, UK. The transaction will not have any appreciable effect on Fortum’s results.
Tapio Kuula, President of Fortum’s Power and Heat Sector said: ”We are pleased to announce this disposal, which is another step forward in our strategy to focus on businesses where we can achieve a strong market position. We will continue to consolidate our production assets in the Nordic region”.
