Finnish real-estate firm Antilooppi has completed two new solar power stations, increasing the number of its own solar power stations to six.

The solar power stations were commissioned at Tallberginkatu 2 in Ruoholahti and Valimotie 21 in Pitäjänmäki.

The station at Tallbergintalo began operating on 10 May, with the station at Valimo 21 beginning operation on 22 May.

The company’s first four solar power stations were completed in 2022.

Antilooppi aims to achieve a carbon-neutral real-estate portfolio by 2030.

Hannamari Koivula, head of Sustainability at Antilooppi, said: “In addition to improving energy efficiency, our own production of renewable energy is one of the key measures in line with our carbon-neutrality roadmap.

“The solar power stations increases our energy self-sufficiency and produce clean and emission-free electricity for the needs of our properties, and it’s great that Tallbergintalo and Valimo 21 have also got their own power stations.

“This is yet another concrete step towards the carbon-neutrality goal set in our sustainability strategy.

“This also supports our customers’ sustainability goals and growing expectations for climate change mitigation and sustainable premises.”

The stats

The station at Tallbergintalo has a total of 70 roof panels, and its total power output is 29 kWp.

The estimated energy production in the first year is approximately 25 MWh.

The station at Valimo 21 has 85 panels and a total power output of 35 kWp.

The energy production of the station during the first year is estimated to be 32 MWh.

The annual production estimate for all of Antilooppi’s solar power stations built so far is approximately 284 MWh.

Future plans

Antilooppi plans to launch at least six new solar power stations in 2023.

Of these, the station located at Hermannin Rantatie 10 in Verkkosaari is expected to be completed “soon”.

Investigations of the implementation of stations are “progressing rapidly”, Antilooppi says, at Siltasaari 10 in Hakaniemi, Itämerentalo in Ruoholahti, and Merikortteli in Punavuori.

Antilooppi says all of its properties use 100% renewable electricity, with the heating of 10 properties already coming from renewable energy sources.

Tallbergintalo achieved BREEAM certification in May.
