Climate friendliness creates jobs
The efficient use of renewable biofuels in combined heat and power plants contributes to international efforts to mitigate climate change and the achievement of the emission standards set by Finland and the EU within the deadlines determined. For its part, Lahti Energy’s project strengthens VEO’s position as a domestic and international automation and electrification provider in the power generation sector. The project’s total employment impact for VEO is approximately 20 person-years, half of them in equipment design and manufacturing and half in site operations. The power plant will also create permanent jobs in Päijät-Häme when the fuel changes from foreign coal to locally-sourced renewable energy.
