14.01.2014 SEW-EURODRIVE instrumental in refurbishment of Imatra hydropower plant News
Finnish energy company Fortum Oyi is substantially refurbishing its hydropower plant in Imatra in the southeast of Finland
between 2013 and 2015. The project involves the complete refurbishment of two of the power plant’s seven units. In the run-up
to the project, Fortum aimed to use as many local suppliers as possible in the project’s subcontracting work. As SEW-EURODRIVE
Oy was the only company capable of offering a complete package (see info box), it was awarded the contract for modernizing
the intake gates.
