Background

When the four coal units were commissioned starting in 1974, the Inkoo power plant was the biggest coal-fired power plant in the Nordic countries. Throughout the 2000s, the power plant produced electricity for the Nordic electricity markets, primarily during peak consumption. From 2011 to 2013, Unit 3 was in the Finnish Energy Authority’s national peak-load reserve capacity system, but was subsequently no longer selected for the reserve capacity system.[2] The plant was decommissioned in February 2014.[3]

On March 24, 2020, the plant's last chimney was demolished.[2][4]
