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.
The district heating network in Helsinki will be surveyed from a helicopter with a thermal imaging camera in November in order to localise any thermal leaks.
The Lassila heating plant, which safeguards heat supplies to North Helsinki, will undergo modifications to meet the EU's new emission limit requirements. The replacement of the oil tank at the heating plant will start in early November. After the oil tank replacement has been completed, the natural gas burners in two boilers in the heating plant will also be replaced.
Helen is launching a new district heating service on the market: a smart heat distribution centre saves energy and reduces heating costs for residents. The smart heat distribution centre creates equal indoor conditions for all apartments of a housing company.

As part of the environmental impact assessment of the plant, a residents' survey is conducted in September, to investigate the effects of the bioenergy heating plant on the environment and people.
Deputy Mayor Anni Sinnemäki today inaugurated Helen's underground heating and cooling plant, which is located under the Esplanade Park. The plant's large heat pumps produce district heat and district cooling.
Helen's underground heating and cooling plant located under the Esplanade Park has been completed, and trial operations have started. The large heat pumps produce both district heat and district cooling. They recover a significant amount of excess heat from properties for utilisation in heat production.
Helen has decided to build Finland's largest heat storage facility in the old oil caverns in Mustikkamaa for the storage of district heat. The heat storage facility will allow reduction in the use of fossil fuels.
