Improve operational efficiency and strengthen the additional margin by increasing refineries' availability and decreasing safety and quality incidents

Strengthen long-term competitiveness by responding to market changes and customer needs

  • We made an investment decision to build a feedstock pre-treatment unit in Porvoo and are investigating the structural change of the Naantali refinery
  • With the changes, we pursue an improvement in our product distribution and cost-efficiency (production of heavy fuel oil will decrease by 25% while the production volume of middle distillates increases)
  • We made a decision on building a new hydrogen unit in collaboration with an external partner.


  • We will implement the agreed investments and changes in operational methods as planned, paying particular attention to change management.
