Borealis Polymers Oy has selected Caverion to continue for another three years as its partner in the maintenance of the Kilpilahti production facilities. The agreement marks the continuation of the previous three-year contract period, and its scope covers the daily work of some 60 people in the fields of piping, steel frame, equipment, electricity and automation maintenance. The agreement does not involve the transfer of any personnel between the companies. It does, however, include an option to continue the partnership for a further two years.
Caverion Industria Ltd. is a leading provider of industrial services in Finland. The company has long-standing experience of maintenance partnerships with various branches of industry.
“The partnership agreement with Borealis is a very important one for Caverion. The work covered by the agreement will require additional personnel, particularly qualified welders. We are also proud of the fact that working in the facilities during operating times has become safe, thanks to systematic co-operation on this front. It has been eight years since the last accident that resulted in an absence,” says unit manager Olli Kelorita.
“Our renewal of this agreement with Caverion is an indication of our satisfaction with our maintenance co-operation so far. We also believe in Caverion’s capacity for further development as a producer of maintenance services in a demanding environment,” says Hannu Luoto, Plant Availability & Engineering Manager, Borealis Polymers Oy.
