Eaton announces the construction of a new campus for its critical power systems in Vantaa, Finland. This will integrate all current operations, including energy storage, into one larger location.
The 16,500 square-metre site is expected to be completed by the end of 2023 and will bring together research, development, manufacturing, storage, sales and service under one roof. The new campus should create up to 100 additional jobs.
Eaton is one of the world's largest manufacturers of three-phase uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). The company is growing strongly in this area and is seeing a surge in demand for systems that ensure business continuity - whether for data centres, commercial and industrial buildings or healthcare and marine applications. The new facility in Vantaa, near Helsinki airport in Finland, will serve as Eaton's headquarters for Critical Power Solutions and a centre of excellence for data centres.
The expansion is a result of growing demand for the output of Eaton's existing facility in Espoo, Finland, including the grid-interactive UPS and energy storage systems that support the energy transition.
The new campus will house a state-of-the-art test facility that will not only support product development and operations, but also put Eaton's products into practice. This will also need to attract new talent. New jobs will be created in operations, research and development, commerce and technical support.
