Several renovation projects for water and wastewater treatment plants are being launched in Russian Karelia during 2021, e.g. In Sortavala and Pitkäranta. In addition, industrial plants operating in the area also have a need to modernize their water treatment solutions. These projects require e.g. hardware suppliers and design offices. On January 28, 2021, we will organize a webinar where Russian and Finnish operators from different sectors will present their actions and experiences in Russian water and wastewater sector. Webinar is targeted to Finnish companies interested in the projects in Karelia, and organized in cooperation with Kuopio Water Cluster, Finnish Water Forum and Miksei Oy.
