The solar power system delivered by Helen, consisting of 101 panels on the roof of the Otavamedia offices in Pasila, has already generated over 7,000 kWh of electricity since the beginning of July. This corresponds to the annual consumption of one detached home.
A third of the almost 3,000 solar panels of the Kivikko solar power plant will soon be sold. The panels have only been up for sale for a few days, and they have been much sought after.
The foundation work on the pellet system in the Hanasaari power plant has started. A pellet system is being built at the power plant to replace part of the coal used with wood pellets.
Solar power production in Finland’s largest solar power plant started in the Helsinki district of Suvilahti in early March. A solar power plant in an urban environment enables production of clean energy close to where the energy is used. Helen’s plant will increase the total solar electricity output connected to Finland’s grid by over 10 per cent.
The Helen Group’s annual report has been published. The report describes year 2014 when Helsingin Energia was still the parent company of the Helen Group. The public utility was incorporated at the turn of the year, and it now operates as Helen Ltd in the form of a limited company.
Helsingin Energia has designed and installed the Sakarinmäki School Centre heating system, running on renewable energy, as a pilot project. From the beginning, the school’s pupils and teachers were included to provide ideas on how energy issues might be made a visible part of the school’s daily life and curriculum.
Helsingin Energia’s innovation Urban living comfort and energy efficiency has won the customer deed and innovation competition organised by Finnish Energy Industries.
Helsingin Energia is launching a solar energy programme, starting with the building of a solar power plant in Suvilahti in Helsinki in the first phase of the programme.
Helsingin Energia is preparing for the launch of pellet combustion at the Salmisaari at the end of the year. Two large pellet silos arrived in separate sections at the Salmisaari harbour on Sunday evening, and they are currently being assembled at the power plant yard.
Helen Group’s turnover for the review period stood at EUR 276 million. The turnover decreased by EUR 53 million on the previous year as a result of the exceptionally mild weather in February and March.
