This alliance brings together two independent service providers with a strong market position and an established portfolio based on broad experience in serving energy-intensive industries and engineering know-how covering the whole life cycle of a power plant. With the combined 1,500 experts and geographical reach of Fortum eNext and Uniper Engineering, we are able to serve our customers globally, while having an even wider local presence in Germany, UK, Finland, and Sweden.

The cooperation teams have jointly developed an offering focusing mainly in the area of turbine and generator maintenance and modernisation services as well as in engineering and delivering solutions for smart, next-generation low-carbon energy systems.

“Our offering and our expertise complement each other perfectly. Therefore, in the future we will be able to operate more strongly in the market together and offer our customers an even more comprehensive range of services through expanded in-house disciplines,” says Dr. Cord Landsmann, COO for Uniper Engineering.

Customers will benefit from highly specialised expert services for the entire turbine train and beyond. Fortum eNext and Uniper Engineering are together qualified to maintain and upgrade a broad selection of equipment originally supplied by different manufacturers. The increased number of experts close to customers bring flexibility and the ability to react fast when support is needed.

“With increased capabilities and resources, we are able to offer the technically best suitable solution for each case, and support our customers in their specific needs. Experience from the first concrete projects shows that both teams share a strong ‘customer first’ attitude – and that’s ideal!,” says Kimmo Kohtamäki, Vice President for Fortum eNext.
