Power management firm Eaton is building a new campus for its critical power systems in Vantaa, Finland. The 16,500 square-meter site is expected to house research and development, warehousing, manufacturing, sales and service.

The expansion was driven by strong business growth and a demand for systems aimed at business continuity. The facility is located next to the Helsinki airport. It is slated for completion by the end of 2023. It will be Eaton’s Critical Power Solutions headquarters and a center of excellence for data centers.

The new facility will have a test area, supporting product development and demonstrations. It will also create new jobs in operations, research and development, commercial and technical support.

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 will continue its commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency with the new building, featuring the company’s own technology such as power management tools and electric vehicle charters. The company’s Espoo plant has sent zero waste to landfills since 2015.
