Comprehensive full-scope operation and maintenance services

Fortum eNext's main task is to optimise power plant operations in order to maximise owner's returns throughout the asset lifetime. We run the owner's power plant with the proven best practices gained by decades of experience in own assets, and this way ensure high availability, efficiency and reliability with the highest standards in safety and sustainability. To tailor the services for each specific customer environment in question, we bring along our state-of-the-art intelligent digital solutions and wide in-house expertise network for O&M excellence and plant performance. This holistic support enables a head start with technical and commercial pre-investment advisory, O&M planning and mobilisation.

To show our commitment and confidence in our ability to guarantee long-term value creation, investing a minor equity stake in your company is also open to negotiation.

Decades of experience in international O&M

Our long and extensive experience has shown that power plant's performance and profitability can be affected with considerate decisions at the beginning of the asset's lifetime.

Focus on profitability

Furthermore, decisions made and practises implemented determine strongly both expected cash flow from operations as well as the direction of power plant's profitability.

Owner's perspective

With our decades of experience in international O&M as well as the knowledge and history in serving Fortum's own assets, Fortum eNext can ensure your power plant's profitability in the future.

Our extensive expertise and competences in thermal production cover demanding fuels, including biomass and waste.

Fortum eNext has a strong track record of being fully responsible for power plant's O&M while creating measurable value to the power plant owner. Based on our prior achievements and performance, Fortum eNext is seen as a trusted and bankable O&M service provider also in the eyes of financial stakeholders. Consequently, our low risk profile often allows a lower interest rate for power plant owner's financing.

Our full-scope O&M approach

Full-scope O&M solutions


Fortum eNext's full-scope O&M starts with O&M Advisory services regarding O&M related technical and commercial questions, design reviews and advice concerning long-term service agreements with main equipment vendors.

In O&M Planning and Mobilisation phases, we are responsible for mobilising plant operations, including setting up O&M organisation, integrated management system, required digital solutions and safety systems.

After commercial operations date, Fortum eNext takes full responsibility for the O&M of the customer's power plant, including the planning of operation, performing daily operations, plant maintenance, material and resource management and continuous improvement. As supplementary services, we can take responsibility for ash handling, overhauls and upgrades for example. Precise scope and deliverables can be agreed based on customer's needs and priorities.

High standards in EHSQ aspects enable operational excellence

Fortum eNext is striving to minimise the environmental impact of energy production and safety is always a top priority within our company.

To prove our high standards, the Royal Society for Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA) has awarded their prestigious President's Award in 2019 to a power plant operated by Fortum eNext.

Fortum eNext's operations are certified in accordance with the ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 quality management systems.
