Industrial-scale heat pumps from France, to be installed in the Esplanade underground cooling plant, will arrive in Finland by sea this week. The heat pump parts will be transported from the Vuosaari Harbour to Helen’s district cooling cavern.
At Helen’s Environment Day, the company introduced its key words for the future: city resident participation, recycling excess heat, flexibility, and moving away from fossil fuels. Renewable energy production requires an increasing amount of space.
Helen is involved in an EU project to test new solutions in climate change mitigation in cities. Energy saving plays a key role in the project.
Finnish people regard Helen as the most sustainable brand among energy companies according to the largest survey in the Nordic countries concerning citizens’ views on the responsibility of well-known brands.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment, the Energy Authority and Motiva have awarded Helen with recognition for its excellent energy-efficiency work. The event took place at the awards gala and seminar on energy efficiency agreements held at the Finlandia Hall on 15 June 2017.
One of the two oil tanks in the Jakomäki heating plant will be modified and the use of one will be suspended. The modification work will start in early April, and the plant will be calibrated to meet the new emission requirements in September. The heating plant will be back in full operation in December 2017.
Finland’s largest pellet boiler will arrive in the Salmisaari power plant area next week.
Helen is building new solar power plants on the properties of business customers.The customer provides the facility for the power plant and will, in turn, be able to take advantage of the electricity generated by the plant.
