Both Valio and Nevel are leading companies in their fields, and this is exactly the kind of project that Finland needs right now.
“Nevel showed willingness and the ability to think on behalf of their client, which gives us confidence going forward.”
“Security of supply, profitability and sustainability are priorities in our energy solutions, but they can’t be achieved without the right expertise. Our partner simply has to know their stuff,” says Peter Fabritius, Energy manager at Valio.
Valio and Nevel have previously collaborated at Valio’s Haapavesi dairy in north-eastern Finland, and now Nevel has assumed full responsibility for Valio’s energy supply operations at its Jyväskylä dairy.
“What makes milk processing unique is that the continuous supply of raw milk needs to be processed right away. There cannot be any interruptions in production. Everything needs to work, and we have very specific demands for process steam that need be fulfilled at all times. Ultimately, security of supply determines the final energy price for Valio because the cost of production downtime is significant. We simply cannot afford it, and nor can our partners,” Fabritius says.
