KUHMO GREEN TIMBER SCHOOL

Recipient of financing: Town of Kuhmo
Project category: Sustainable construction
Loan amount: € 12,000,000
Loan period: 20 years

Project description:

The town of Kuhmo has commissioned Finland's first CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) school, which will provide a learning environment for 450 children. The school will be built entirely from timber, with only the bomb shelter being made of concrete. The aim is to have a sturdy, local, wooden building that supports the bioeconomy and serves as a national pilot project for the practical application of bioeconomy principles in the construction of a large-scale, public, wooden building.

The project will also increase the utilisation of local, renewable natural resources, such as in Kuhmon Lämpö Oy's use of bioenergy-based district heating energy to heat the building. Based on the planned solutions, the building's estimated total energy consumption is 120 kWhe/m2 (Energy Class B).

LÄNSIMETRO (WESTERN METRO EXTENSION)

Recipient of financing: Länsimetro Oy
Project category: Public transport
Loan amount: € 220,000,000
Loan period: 30 years

Project description:

The construction of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area metro line between Ruoholahti and Espoo via Lauttasaari. The first phase will involve the completion of a 14-kilometre track from Ruoholahti to Matinkylä, and eight new stations. The Matinkylä–Kivenlahti stretch of the Länsimetro (Western Metro Extension) will be the next, seven-kilometre phase of the project. The metro line from Matinkylä to Kivenlahti will be completed by 2020 at the earliest.

It is estimated that the new metro line will transport 170,000 people a day, significantly reducing the use of private cars and bus traffic from Espoo to Helsinki, which will represent a major reduction in emissions from private and public transport. The new metro line will also concentrate and compact the residential structure, which will support environmentally friendly urban development. The estimated total cost of the investment is close to two billion euros.

Lease period: 20 years + optional 5 years

Project description:

The City of Hämeenlinna will commission the construction of the Nummi Centre as a lifecycle project.

The aim is for the new building to become a 'village centre' for city residents at all stages of life.

Energy management will be based on connecting the building to a 24/7 control room. The control room will monitor energy consumption, produce comparative data and propose measures, as well as report and intervene in cases of spikes in consumption. Both geothermal energy and district heating will be used for heating the premises. Based on the planned solutions, the building's estimated total energy consumption is 88 kWhe/m2 (Energy Class A).
