Kyro Power’s Kyröskoski hydro plant was inaugurated on 8 September with three presidents in attendance, including the President of Finland.

The new plant replaced one dating from the early years of this century, and has increased power production and plant efficiency, while improving the local environment (see IWP&DC, August 1998, p30).

Present at the inauguration ceremony were (from left to right) Mattie Heino, president of Kyro Power; Carl-Johan Numelin, chairman of the board of Kyro; Finnish President Martti Artisaari; and Pentti Yliheljo, Kyro president and CEO.
