Aurora Kilpilahti (KED Oy) is looking for a Development Manager
The Position as Development Manager at Aurora Kilpilahti has been filled. Aurora would like to thank all applicants in their interest in working with us.
Safety first – “gets us home safe today and everyday” is a key value of Aurora. Aurora has therefore been supportive of projects related to promoting and improving safety, particularly in its local operating environment.
In Tornio, RIG has provided traffic safety workbooks to local first-grade students.The workbook can be used throughout primary school, i.e. grades 1-6. “With the help of the workbook, traffic signs and rules are taught to the children in a fun and educational way. We delivered about 130 workbooks, “says Jukka Kuula, CEO of RIG.
RIG has also, since 2015, supported the private funded rescue helicopter Aslak, operating in Northern Finland.
KED has, in 2016, also decided to support children’s traffic safety. As the Kilpilahti area has a lot of heavy traffic, KED wanted to give the pupils of Kulloo educational center (grades 1-6) a flashing safety reflector. “The safety reflector is a cheap life insurance,” says KED’s executive assistant Petra Kraufvelin-Bergman. “As a parent, I feel it’s important to make sure your child has a safe journey to school, especially during our dark winter months. I am very proud of my employer for proactively supporting this initiative.”
Industrial seminar for Finnish institutions in Kilpilahti
In September 2016, Access Capital Partners, OP Group and Aurora Management organised a seminar in Kilpilahti, Porvoo for representatives of Finnish institutions who have an interest in the infrastructure sector.
The KED electricity network was showcased for the delegates. The day involved an overview of the site and grid as well as a visit to a couple of substations where delegates could see some of KED’s assets close up.
A presentation was held on the characteristics of the infrastructure asset class and Aurora distribution grids in particular. There were around 20 visitors who found the day extremely informative and enjoyable.
