”During the period under review, Gasum focused on the promotion of cleaner transport on land and at sea. The LNG Business entered into a significant partnership with ESL Shipping, which will start operating two LNG-fueled ships in the first half of 2018. LNG as a marine fuel meets all current as well as known future environmental requirements. Its use in vessels also reduces particulate emissions and significantly reduces carbon dioxide emissions. The maritime industry regards LNG as a cost-effective choice for reducing emissions.
In the third quarter of the year we strengthened our filling station network for gas vehicle users by opening new filling stations for key transport nodes in Vantaa and Jyväskylä, Finland. We also entered into an important circular economy partnership with IKEA Finland. The cooperation will involve using food waste from IKEA restaurants in Finland to produce biogas, with Gasum gas filling stations also to be constructed in conjunction with IKEA stores.
The Finnish natural gas wholesale and retail market will be opened to competition in 2020 in accordance with the Natural Gas Market Act. Work on the gas market rules will take place actively during the autumn in workshops in cooperation with customers and stakeholders. At Gasum we regard it important to work together with customers and stakeholders to create the best models to serve Finnish gas users.”
