Caverion is taking the responsibility for property management, maintenance of cooling and refrigeration equipment and remote management of nearly 400 Shell and St1 petrol stations in Finland. The aim of the cooperation is to develop St1’s maintenance operations and to improve energy efficiency through timely investments.
"With this partnership agreement, we aim for further progress in St1's maintenance operations and we are confident that Caverion will be able to meet our key development needs. Caverion's extensive expertise helps us not only in terms of maintenance; it helps us to improve energy efficiency as well. This long-term agreement is strategically important for us," says Paula Puotiniemi, Network Manager at St1 Oy.
Caverion has been responsible for maintaining the cooling and refrigeration equipment at St1's distribution stations for many years. As the cooperation deepens, Caverion’s Finland-wide service network will continue to be responsible for the maintenance and modernisation of St1’s refrigeration technology.
With the new agreement, the partnership will now extend to include property management, 24/7 help desk, various advisory services as well as remote management.
"We are delighted that our partnership with St1 is expanding to include new services. Our mutual trust and excellent cooperation with St1’s network of service providers help us to ensure a consistent operating model and a successful customer experience at nearly 400 petrol stations nationwide," says Laura Karotie, Vice President, Managed Services at Caverion Finland.
