Ishavskraft AS was established by five local energy companies in Finnmark and Nord-Troms in June 1997. Fortum became Ishavskraft’s shareholder in 2000 with 49% shareholding. Currently, Ishavskraft AS has approximately 90,000 customers, a turnover in excess of 1.7 billion NOK and more than 20 employees in the cities of Alta and Tromsø.
The divestment is in accordance with Fortum's ambition to focus on its own consumer brand.
