Turveruukki – Locally and regionally supplied energy
TURVERUUKKI – Success Story
”We needed an updated environmental information system with appropriate features and versatile reporting possibilities, such a system that could be used later more broadly in Oulu Energia Group concerning issues of sustainability. In peat production good care of the environmental issues is essential. It is important that all items related to environmental permit, measurement data of peat production and monitoring as well as rental agreements and payments of peat bogs are in the same information system. For us it is vital that CSM enables a clear alarm view for monitoring the status of needed actions.“
