The planning of the City Refinery, a joint venture by Helen, Lassila & Tikanoja and VTT, is making progress. The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment (MEAE) has granted energy aid to Helen for the City Refinery project where renewable raw materials can be processed from non-recyclable materials and utilised in the transport and materials sectors. The City Refinery is planned for Vuosaari.
Helen’s good profit trend, strong balance sheet and financial position enable development and growth of solutions for a new energy era.
Helen, Lassila & Tikanoja and VTT are pursuing a circular economy in their use of materials and energy. The City Refinery aims to process difficult-to-recycle materials and biomass into high-grade products. This will boost the efficiency of recycling of materials in Helsinki. The City Refinery is a critical step towards mitigating climate change and shifting society from a throwaway mindset to a circular one.
Helen will build a heat pump in connection with the Vuosaari power plant, utilising the power plant’s own cooling water circulation and the heat of sea water as heat sources. A heat pump of this scale utilising the heat of the sea water is unique in Finland.
One of Helsinki's largest solar power plants is being built on the roof of Messukeskus Expo and Convention Centre, and the panels are now available to rent as Helen's designated panels.
Helen’s Hanasaari power plant will be closed by the end of 2024. Heat production will be replaced with heat recycling with heat pumps, energy storage, and a bioenergy heating plant planned for Vuosaari.
A housing company in Jätkäsaari invested in the future and commissioned Helen to build 12 electric vehicle charging points in the property’s indoor car park.
The German energy company E.ON is joining forces with the Finnish company Liikennevirta.
Helen is investigating the possibility of building a bioenergy heating plant in the Patola district of Helsinki on a heating plant site used by Helen. The heating plant planned for Patola will require a revision of the town plan to enable construction of a second plant at the current site.
Public open evening on environmental impacts of Tattarisuo bioenergy heating plant on Tuesday 27 November 2018
Helen is investigating the possibility of constructing a bioenergy heating plant in Tattarisuo, Helsinki. In November, the Uusimaa Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY) is organising a public open evening to disseminate the results of the environmental impact assessment.
