Organization, personnel and partners

Organization, personnel and partners

Kemijoki’s employees have versatile skills and their know-how is something that cannot be copied from books. Most of our employees provide expert services in Rovaniemi. We have a low organizational structure, we follow the same rules, and we all have clear roles.

Our core operations are divided into four entities:
1) Operational preconditions and property management: management of permit conditions, operational environment and obligations as well as long-term development of property and supervision of the interests of another party
2) Availability: operation, maintenance and investments of power plants
3) Hydropower and reserves: planning, control and supervision of production as well as selling the reserves
4) Matters related to corporate responsibility, development and communication of personnel

We operate as a commissioner and expert organization of hydropower production. It means that we acquire most of our operations from service providers. Together with our partners, we are developers of hydropower expertise, employers and active members in the riverside communities.

Thanks to our agile, partnership-based operating model, we are able to produce hydroelectricity cost-efficiently and adapt to changing conditions. It is not only about outsourcing work and reducing costs. When we choose partners, one of our most important criteria is that our partners are prepared to commit to our corporate responsibility program. Our partners must also be willing to invest in growth and in the creation of new jobs in Northern Finland.
