Power plants

In 2023, our 20 power plants produced a total of 4,622 GWh of electricity.

The hydropower plants located at the Kemijoki catchment area are mostly situated by the Kemijoki and Kitinen rivers. Therefore, it is natural that the largest power plants by water quantity are located in the lower reaches of the Kemijoki river’s main channel, below Rovaniemi. The seven power plants of the Kemijoki main channel are among the 10 largest hydropower plants in Finland.

Petäjäskoski, the first power plant built by Kemijoki Oy, is currently Finland’s second largest hydropower plant. It was completed in 1957. The most recent power plant, Kelukoski, was completed in 2001.

We invest in developing our production system

We improve security of production and eco-friendliness at our power plants through refurbishments.
