Hullu Poro Oy invests in sustainability | Siemens delivers building technology, electrification, and virtual power plant service for Aurora Pyramids

Siemens’ delivery scope covers all the required building technology and automation components for the pyramids, electrification of the Taivaanvalkeat area, a solar energy system of 132 kWp with an annual output of 114 Mwh, and a battery storage of 1.3 MW. Eleven pyramids will be completed by the end of 2019.
Once complete, the pyramids will be connected to the smart energy platform of Siemens’ subsidiary VIBECO. The virtual power plant service makes it possible to offer power from the pyramids as a load-balancing reserve for the Fingrid electricity market. The pyramids will be able to automatically increase or reduce their electricity consumption to balance the power grid. Fingrid, the grid operator, pays compensation for such load-balancing operations.   
“Siemens’ virtual platform and the connected building automation will enable efficient and safe operation of the pyramids with the help of cutting-edge technology,” says Ville Stenius from the Smart Infrastructure unit of Siemens Osakeyhtiö.
Clients of Siemens’ new virtual power plant service already include Sello shopping center, VR Group, the town of Lappeenranta, and Goodman shopping center.  
The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment supports the technology investments of the first properties to join the virtual power plant with investment aids for key energy projects totaling EUR 8.4 million. This investment aid ensures that operations significant for society, proceed as quickly as possible.
