The 560 MW supercritical coal plant began operating in 1994.[1] The plant is owned and operated by Fortum Power. TVO has a 45% holding in the plant.[2]

Since 2017 the plant had been operating in Finland's peak-load reserve system. However, in September 2022, Fortum was unsuccessful in the Energy Authority's tendering process to have the plant included in the next peak-load reserve capacity period. Fortum announced it would prepare the plant for commercial use but would be offline for annual maintenance between October 10 and 31. The company stated "the deployment of actual electricity production depends on the electricity market situation at the given time."[3]
