Helen to significantly increase its wind power production – total investment of EUR 100 million in a new wind farm
Helen has started the construction work of the Lakiakangas 3 wind farm in Ostrobothnia in partnership with the project developer CPC Finland. The project supports Helen’s target to increase wind power production fivefold in two years. Energy generated by the new wind farm will be available to Helen’s customers in 2022.
The first half of 2020 was exceptional: the weather in the early part of the year was warmer than normal, the hydropower situation was excellent, and the coronavirus pandemic also had an impact on Helen’s operations. The decrease in net sales continued in the second quarter, however, the Group’s operating profit was at the expected level. The business reorganisation continued. Helen Ventures, which was launched last autumn, made a minority investment in a growth company that optimises heat
As from 1 September 2020, Helen's sales and customer service will be headed by Anu-Elina Hintsa, who is tasked with ensuring the high performance and customer-centricity of its sales function.
As from 23 June 2020, Helen will be building a new cooling network and modernising a section of the existing heating network in Kamppi. The worksite will be implemented between Eteläinen Rautatiekatu - Pohjoinen Rautatiekatu – Runeberginkatu.
New sustainability and energy management services for Helen's corporate customers - developed in cooperation with EnerKey
The new basic level energy management services will be widely available to Helen's corporate customers. In addition, the renewed service offering will be expanded during the current year to meet the needs of advanced sustainability reporting and energy management for even the most demanding corporate customers.
Buildings in Helsinki can now be cooled with fully emission-free cooling produced by utilising waste heat. From the beginning of this year, all cooling products from the energy company Helen have been carbon-neutral, as only renewable energy sources are used in their production.
Smarter and more efficient district heat on a global scale – Helen Ventures invests in Dutch startup Gradyent that develops heat production with artificial intelligence
Helen Ventures is investing in a Dutch startup, which optimises district heating systems with artificial intelligence. With the investment, Helen Ventures brings world-class district heating expertise to the startup where artificial intelligence is applied in a global branch of industry.
Helen is creating a new heat production model for households with a new pilot project – Ground-source heat to be part of the company’s carbon-neutral range of energy solutions
Carbon-neutral heating plays a key role in the reduction of climate emissions. Geothermal heat and ground-source heat complement emission-free heat sources and are well suited for the district heating network. Helen also offers ground-source heat solutions for properties.
From here on in, OP's Vallila premises are heated with emission-free Recycled Heat, which is 100 per cent recycled waste heat. The move to emission-free Recycled Heat permits emission savings of about 4.6 per cent from OP Financial Group's own emissions.
