A major industrial investment project is underway in Kokkola, as the Sibanye-Stillwater’s Keliber lithium refinery is being built in the Kokkola Industrial Park. ASES will carry out the process electrification installations for the new refinery. This is a major contract for ASES.
In the Deep Mine project of the Outokumpu Kemi mine, the mine will be deepened between 500 and 1000 levels as an underground mine. A lot of infrastructure required by the mining process has been built underground, and ASES has played a significant role in electrifying it in this project.
ASES and Siemens Energy Oy have jointly implemented two extensive 110 kV gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) modernization projects. Siemens Energy Oy has been the main contractor and ASES has done high-quality installation work in the role of subcontractor.
ASES and South-West Supply Oy have implemented new heat recovery solutions for Terrafame's hydrogen plants, achieving significant savings in energy use and reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Two sites were identified in the project, where it was possible to utilize heat recovery technology by post-treatment of flue gases and steam, which is completely new in the hydrogen plant environment.
In 2016, ASES began cooperation with Savaterra Oy, which built a contaminated soil treatment plant in Guangzhou, China. ASES acted as a wide-ranging electrical automation partner in the project. Later, Reccon Oy bought Savaterra's Asian operations with equipment and patents, but the close cooperation between these Lapland-based companies continues.
We started an expansion work of a 110 kV switchyard for ABB at Outokumpu Chrome Oy Kemi Mine this May. The objective is to improve service reliability and enable alternation during e.g. switchyard maintenance.
ASES has carried out several assignments at Outokumpu’s cold rolling mills as they shift to using liquefied natural gas (LNG), over the last couple of years. The shift to using LNG decreases carbon dioxide emissions, thus helping Outokumpu forward with their climate objectives.
Savaterra Oy, an environmental technology company from Rovaniemi, Finland, develops equipment for purification and remediation of polluted soils and improving soil from warewater sludge. In 2016, Savaterra developed a new remediation plant for the Chinese market. They were looking for an all-around process electricity and automation partner to carry out the electrification and automation of the ...
Wärtsilä, a global leader in smart technologies and complete lifecycle solutions for the marine and energy markets, built a liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal in Tornio, Finland. This terminal is the largest such facility in the entire Nordic region. The Manga LNG terminal, opened in 2018, delivers natural gas mainly to Outokumpu’s Tornio operations, but serves also mines and other potential local customers using LNG. An ...
Outokumpu’s Tornio operations is the most integrated stainless-steel plant in the world, with all the phases of their processing chain at the same facility. The plant area consists of all the departments of steel production: two stainless steel melt shop lines, hot rolling mill, cold rolling plant, brushing and polishing as well as ...
