As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of three-phase uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), Eaton’s expansion in this area is driven by strong business growth and the demand for systems that ensure business continuity, be it for data centers, commercial and industrial buildings or healthcare and marine applications. Situated in a prime location next to the Helsinki airport, the Vantaa facility will serve as Eaton’s Critical Power Solutions headquarters and a center of excellence for data centers.
Eaton has a strong knowledge base in Finland, as its local subsidiary, with 250 employees, has been developing and manufacturing UPSs and power conversion technology since 1962. The decision to expand was prompted by growing demand for the output of Eaton’s existing factory in Espoo, including the grid-interactive UPS and energy storage systems that will support the energy transition away from fossil fuels.
The new facility will include a cutting-edge test area that not only supports product development and operations but also showcases Eaton’s products in action. For customers, this translates into a best-in-class experience in terms of tours, meetings and factory acceptance testing, which will also require the hiring of new talent. New jobs will be created in operations, research and development, commercial as well as technical support.
Eaton is dedicated to improving sustainability and energy efficiency – both in terms of its processes and the products it manufactures – and this project is no exception. In fact, the existing Espoo plant has already sent zero waste to landfill since 2015, and the new building will feature various innovative Eaton technologies for reducing the carbon footprint, from power management solutions to electric vehicle chargers.
Karina Rigby, president, Critical Systems, Electrical Sector at Eaton in EMEA, said: “By investing and strengthening our footprint in Finland, we’re building on Eaton’s strong local heritage while delivering on our commitment to sustainability. Eaton’s power quality business is growing, driven by digitalization and the energy transition, and thanks to the new Vantaa campus, we’ll be ready to support our customers now and in the future. It’s particularly exciting to see how UPS technology has evolved over time – today, it not only ensures business continuity for critical applications but also plays a role in the switch to renewables, by acting as a source of flexibility that supports grid stability.”
Eaton is an intelligent power management company dedicated to improving the quality of life and protecting the environment for people everywhere. We are guided by our commitment to do business right, to operate sustainably and to help our customers manage power ─ today and well into the future. By capitalizing on the global growth trends of electrification and digitalization, we’re accelerating the planet’s transition to renewable energy, helping to solve the world’s most urgent power management challenges, and doing what’s best for our stakeholders and all of society.
