Nevel has built a new energy plant at the Fazer Lappeenranta confectionery plant to supply more environmentally friendly heat and steam. The new plant uses low-emission natural gas but is designed so that biogas can be used in the future to further improve sustainability. Nevel operates the plant, allowing Fazer to devote more resources to developing their core business – making delicious confectionery.
The Fazer Lappeenranta confectionery plant uses more than 40 GWh of steam energy per year – equivalent to 2500 large homes. The new heat and steam plant being built by Nevel has a total boiler capacity of 16 MW. In addition to planning and construction, Nevel is also responsible for the operations of the plant. As a long-term customer, Fazer will simply buy the energy it needs.
”The new Fazer Lappeenranta heat plant has been built in cooperation with Nevel. The plant brings enhanced energy efficiency and enables future sustainability for energy production. Nevel has responsibility for operation of the plant. I want to express my warm thanks to the whole project team for getting the plant operational."
To provide reliable and environmentally friendly energy to Fazer’s Lappeenranta confectionery plant.
Nevel will build and operate a new boiler plant running on clean-burning natural gas and Fazer will buy energy as needed.
A secure energy supply and better sustainability – which will improve even further when the plant transitions to biogas in the future.
