The Kilpilahti closed distribution network is the second industrial electricity network investment of Aurora and the largest single site industrial electricity network in Finland based on replacement value. It is also the first industrial electricity network to be granted a network license by the Finnish regulator. The transaction was agreed with Neste, the seller, in 2014, enabling Aurora to become a significant player in the Finnish electricity network landscape and to deepen its understanding of the special needs and requirements related to electricity distribution of the large industrial partners it serves.
The Kilpilahti industrial site, located in Porvoo, is the largest chemical industry concentration in the Nordics. The companies operating at the site consume approximately 2 TWh of electricity per year. Neste, the largest partner of Aurora in Kilpilahti, is majority state owned and it operates one of Europe’s most advanced and versatile refineries at the site. Other large partners, with long ties to Kilpilahti, include Borealis and Aga (Linde).
Aurora Kilpilahti is currently performing a significant investment plan of approximately 200 million euros in total. The investments are mainly modernisations and replacements of the existing electrical equipment, but also related to its industrial partners’ site development plans. The investments will ensure high quality and reliable “weather proof” electricity distribution also in the future, enabling us to serve our industrial partners in the best possible way.
