Finland is one of the leading countries in Europe in the utilization of different waste fractions in waste-to-value solutions. With advanced solutions in waste sorting, incineration and biogas generation, less than 1% of our waste streams end up in landfills.
WOIMA draws on over 20 years of experience in the field of international infrastructure and power generation project deliveries. Now, we are the disruptive force advancing the waste-to-value sector for the benefit of everyone involved. We have developed innovative modular standardized solutions that fit the needs of all different types of customers. Smaller waste generators benefit from our wasteWOIMA® waste-to-energy power plant, while larger waste generators opt for our total WOIMA Ecosystem solution. This enables the utilization of each waste stream to its fullest potential, either as raw material or as energy.
WOIMA has applied the modular standardization principle also to all the tools we use in the design, engineering and customer support. This enables us to serve our extensive agent and customer networks quickly and efficiently. Standardization on all levels increases the speed of both product and project development, simplifies delivery, operation and maintenance, as well as saves cost throughout the process.
All WOIMA solutions and operations fully support the circular economy and the 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) principles.
Built to last
Our arctic location, long distances and sparsely populated land automatically mean that we are highly dependent on energy. Since we do not have significant natural resources, such as oil, we have had to develop new ways to produce energy. And we have done it with sisu. Electricity, heat and fuel production capabilities are our lifeline. Simultaneously, they are amongst our most sought-after export products. Robust products. long lifecycles and low maintenance costs are key factors here. Therefore, ‘Made in Finland’ is synonymous to ‘built to last’ and customers can take it for granted that if a product works in Finland, it will work anywhere.
“If a product works in Finland, it will work anywhere.”
Environmental and Social Benefits
Waste, in all of its forms, whether municipal, commercial, institutional or industrial, is wreaking havoc across the world. Emerging countries are particularly ill-equipped to handle and collect their waste, not to mention landfilling it in a sustainable manner, which leads to environmental, social and health challenges. This is something we want to, and can, change.
WOIMA will radically and readily improve local quality of life and empower people by utilizing waste as a commodity instead of discarding it as refuse. We will combine the Finnish engineering know-how in waste management with power plant design expertise to produce results that will completely change the competitive landscape in waste management. Our location in Vaasa, Finland, a world-renowned energy cluster capital, grants us access to the brightest minds and most experienced professionals in energy-related project businesses. Combining this with the Finnish world-class education system and an inquisitive mind is clearly the winning formula.
