Currently, energy production in the Turku region is largely based on the heat and electricity production of Fortum’s Naantali coal-fired power plant. The power plant annually produces about 1,000 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of electricity for the Nordic market, about 600 GWh of steam for industrial customers, and about 1,500 GWh of district heat for Turun Seudun Kaukolämpö Oy’s heat transmission network. The plant has been operating for 50 years, and its renewal will become topical in the near future. According to the letter of intent, TSME will be responsible for creating a new solution for the Turku area energy production.
