The Hanasaari A power plant was built in 1960–1967. It was decommissioned in 2000 and dismantled in 2008. There is an experimental documentary Hanasaari A by Hannes Vartiainen and Pekka Veikkolainen.
Hanasaari B power plant was built next to Hanasaari A, and was commissioned in 1974 to 1977. Hanasaari B is a coal-fired cogeneration plant producing electricity and heat. The output capacity of the plant is 228 MW of electricity and 445 MW of heat.
In 2014–2018, Helsingin Energia plans to convert Hanasaari B for combustion of biomass. The biomass furnace is being set up alongside one of the existing coal units, which will be kept in reserve in case of emergency. The coal plant will be decommissioned by 2025.
