Early signs of operational disturbances in turbines and generators often go unnoticed. Automated remote monitoring, with a real-time data stream, makes it possible to identify and react to abnormal behaviour without delay. Fortum eNext has developed a remote monitoring service to allow energy producers to avoid unplanned outages, optimise outage intervals and have better control over maintenance costs.
We are very proud to announce that we have received the ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 certifications for Fortum eNext business activity in Fortum India.
E.ON has chosen Fortum eNext to refurbish the old generator in Åbyverket CHP plant unit G3 in Örebro, Sweden. The generator will be serviced in Fortum’s own fully equipped workshop to repair and rewind both rotors and stators. After the refurbishment, the generator will be as good as new and will be able to endure another 20 years of operation.
Fortum eNext was selected to participate in the design and manufacturing of the post-combustion system for Vapo Oy’s first activated carbon facility in Finland. Fortum eNext was able to demonstrate the most advantageous solution to reduce NOx emissions produced in the combustion process.
Fortum eNext has been selected to carry out a boiler refurbishment project at Tisovà, power plant in Western Bohemia in the Czech Republic. The main target is to reduce nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from the lignite fired boiler to make it meet tightening European emission norms.
For the first time, Fortum eNext is doing a full revision of a steam turbine and generator for a customer located in the Czech Republic. The equipment is being overhauled at Fortum’s own workshops in Finland and Sweden and then sent back to the Czech Republic under tight time pressure.
In April, Fortum eNext took on a taxing task from Göteborg Energi in Sweden. The project has two major dimensions: supplying the plant with nitrogen oxide reduction equipment, and designing and installing a new automation system and switchgear, all on a tight schedule in order to complete the work before winter. The project is now running in full swing.
Fortum eNext, specialising in reducing emissions and improving energy efficiency, will supply nitrogen oxide reduction equipment to Vaskiluodon Voima Oy’s Vaasa power plant. The modification will enable the power plant to comply with the tightening restrictions on nitrogen oxide emissions.

Winds of change are blowing in the energy sector. The role of conventional energy production is changing and energy companies need to rethink their strategies and business models.
In recent years, Rwanda has been one of the fastest growing economies in the East African Community, recognised by the World Economic Forum. It is also among the most stable countries in Central Africa. Along with growth comes the need for more energy, amongst other things.
