Case description

To reach the ambitious target of 100% availability for the customer at the new combined heat and power plant in Kilpilahti, Finland, the operator of the plant, Veolia Services Suomi Oy, sought a partner for the lifecycle management of the plant’s gas and steam turbines. Based on previous collaborations, the customer felt Fortum eNext was a natural partner with the resources, the skills and the insight required for managing the lifecycle of the turbine generators.

After the first six months, the customer has a positive view of the partnership. “I expect to be able to trust that Fortum’s maintenance work will address any problems within the time frame to avoid any unexpected faults or other outages. The partnership also creates an ideal platform to work together to draw up a development programme for the future,” says Juha Kujala, Maintenance Manager at Veolia Services Suomi Oy.
