New, more environmentally friendly oil cable

Actor: Turku Energia Ltd   ●   Year: 2016   ●   Address: Myllysilta, Turku, Finland

When the Myllysilta bridge of Turku collapsed in 2010, the place of the 110kV oil cable had to be changed.

Description

At the same time the decision was made to empty the old oil cable of the oil and to change it for a plastic, more environmentally friendly cable. The costs altogether were about EUR 200 000.

Benefits

The exchange of the old cable full of oil considerably reduces the risk of oil spill in the River Aurajoki area. Turku Energia reports all the environmental actions which have been implemented during the year on the environment pages of the company’s annual report and in its financial statements of environment.
