Vantaa Energy

Vantaa Energy’s waste-to-energy plant in East Vantaa is among the best in the world. Each year, it burns 360,000 tonnes of unusable waste supplied by HSY in the Helsinki region and Rosk’n Roll Oy in the Uusimaa province. The amount of waste used by the waste-to-energy plant meets about half of the district heat needed by the entire city of Vantaa in a year. In addition, the plant also covers about 30% of the annual electricity demand of Vantaa. There is a modern visitor center at the premises and the guest also have the opportunity to stop by in the plant.
More information here on their website.

Group 1 – Vantaa Energy | Start Time: 13:30 | End Time: 16:45


Katri Vala heating and cooling plant is the largest heat pump plant in the world to produce heat and cooling. Its carbon dioxide emissions are 80% smaller than for example in separate heat production with heavy fuel oil. The participants get a unique opportunity to visit the plant which is located under the Katri Vala Park in Sörnäinen district.
