Semcon wins contract with Fortum.

Technology company Semcon is entering a new collaborative venture with energy corporation Fortum. The project involves the upcoming refurbishment of hydropower stations at Kallsjön. The SEK 20 million project will extend over two years.

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. It feels very good that they continue to have confidence in us as a partner and have entrusted us with this refurbishment.

Markus Granlund, President and CEO of Semcon

The tender process was carried out during the autumn and Semcon will begin construction immediately. About 10 people will be involved in the project. Fortum is a leading provider of clean energy, with EUR 3.6 billion in annual revenue. Operations comprise 130 hydropower plants.

We need to minimise the risk of long production stops and ensure that the project is carried out according to plan. With Semcon, we can be sure that we get a complete, reliable and affordable delivery.

Johan Nolander, Project Manager at Fortum

Semcon’s offering in energy and renewable energy sources is primarily focused on electricity and control equipment for hydropower plants, substations and converter substations.
