Maintpartner and Fortum strengthen their partnership in Finland

Maintpartner and Fortum have agreed on transfer of operation and maintenance of several Fortum-owned power plants and district heating networks in Finland to Maintpartner.

The agreement includes the operation and maintenance activities of the CHP plants and district heating networks in Espoo, Järvenpää and Joensuu as well as the condensing power plants Meri-Pori and Inkoo. Some 230 operation and maintenance professionals will transfer to Maintpartner as existing employees, for the most part on 1 September 2016. The completion of the transaction is subject to approval from competition authorities.

- The agreement extends and deepens our cooperation with Fortum, and strengthens our position in the energy sector even further. Our digital operational models and service solutions increase quality and efficiency in operation and maintenance. Together we look after ways to improve operations. In addition, Maintpartner’s mode of operation and customer base offers the transferring personnel a possibility to use and develop their competence and skills also in industry, says Johan Westermarck, CEO at Maintpartner Group.

Positive trend in audit results in line with the customer survey

The annual audit by DNV GL concerning ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certificates shows that we are constantly improving our operations.  The audit was carried out in Finland, Sweden and Poland.

Our safety management has developed well and the Group’s renewed strategy including predictive maintenance concept, MP Intelligence®, and the constantly developing Value Elements® offerings have been successfully launched to customers. Also our monthly customer reports as a tool for continuous improvement got good feedback.

These findings were confirmed in the customer survey that was conducted at the same time: Customers assessed our safety management to be on a high level, and gave good scores also to handling of environmental issues and the daily service delivery.

The positive results confirm that MP Way is a good basis for conducting profitable business and performing high quality customer work.
