Adven and Neste have agreed on a long-term service-based steam delivery to Neste’s terminal in Naantali, Finland. Adven will implement a new energy plant using domestic biofuels for steam production.

Neste, known as the world’s leading producer of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel committed to reach carbon-neutral production by 2035.

“Neste is one of the most responsible companies in the world, and we are constantly looking for ways to replace fossil energy with renewable energy. Therefore, also transitioning the terminal to using renewable energy was a logical step on this path. Service-based energy sourcing is also a cost-effective way for us to procure steam”, says Heikki Tegelberg, Terminal Manager at Neste’s Naantali Terminal.



Neste’s terminal in Naantali stores and distributes liquid fuels and raw materials for the needs of industry and society and is also responsible for the distribution of liquid fuels for transport in Western Finland. In addition to liquid fuels, other oil-based products, such as solvents and bitumen, are also consigned to the terminal.

Steam for heating produced with biofuels

The steam to be produced by Adven is used in heating the materials stored in the terminal, so that they maintain their quality at a required level, and so that they can be distributed forward in liquid form all year round. Due to these strict requirements the terminal has a large energy need.

The new energy plant will be equipped with a 13-megawatt boiler that utilizes bio-based domestic fuels. For backup and peak consumption, the plant also has an electric boiler powered by green electricity.

“We started with different solutions and concepts and talked to different suppliers. With Adven, the discussion progressed from the initial reflections to the actual negotiations in good cooperation. They had strong references, a holistic and solution-oriented approach and competitive pricing”, Tegelberg says.

Fully recovered excess energy

With the new solution, the energy plant’s excess energy will also be fully recovered, which will improve energy efficiency compared to before.

“The new energy solution strengthens the partnership between Neste and Adven and, best of all, all in a totally renewable way”, says Adven’s Juha Elo.

Adven has already collaborated with Neste in the Port of Hamina since 1996, responding to Neste’s need for steam.

The new energy solution for the Naantali terminal in brief:

  • Multi-biofuel 13 MW boiler and electric boiler as a peak and reserve production solution
  • Emission free energy solution
  • Steam deliveries will start in the summer of next year
