Helen is investigating the possibility of building a bioenergy heating plant in the Patola district of Helsinki on a heating plant site used by Helen. The heating plant planned for Patola will require a revision of the town plan to enable construction of a second plant at the current site. Presentation and public meeting on the revision of town plan for local residents at 5.30–8pm on Tuesday, 20 November 2018 at Oulunkylä Coeducational School, address Siltavoudintie 24.
Helen is preparing to discontinue the use of coal use by 2029 in accordance with the Government’s policy. Biomass is the fastest way to replace coal.
The plant planned in Patola is a 120-MW bio heating plant using pellets as the main fuel. The planned heating plant would be located on a site used by Helen, next to an existing oil/natural gas-fired heating plant.
The residents meeting is open to all and no separate booking or notice is necessary.
The participation and assessment scheme and material on the preparation of the plan (illustrative drawings and completed reports) will be displayed at the following locations on 19 November – 10 December.
