Semcon works with Fortum on hydro refurb

7 December 2017

Technology company Semcon is collaborating with energy corporation Fortum on the upcoming refurbishment of hydropower stations at Kallsjön.

During the refurbishment at Kallsjön in the Municipality of Åre, Semcon will be responsible for the electrical design, documentation, delivery, assembly, testing and commissioning of new switchgear and excitation equipment.

“We have carried out projects with Fortum for many years now,” said Markus Granlund, President and CEO of Semcon. “It feels very good that they continue to have confidence in us as a partner and have entrusted us with this refurbishment.”

The tender process was carried out during the autumn and Semcon will begin construction immediately. About 10 people will be involved in the project.

“We need to minimise the risk of long production stops and ensure that the project is carried out according to plan,” explained Johan Nolander, Project Manager at Fortum. “With Semcon, we can be sure that we get a complete, reliable and affordable delivery.”

The SEK 20 million project will extend over two years.
