Energy Company Grows Customer Oriented Circular Economy Services

Fortum is a leading clean-energy company that provides its customers with electricity, heating and cooling as well as smart solutions to improve resource efficiency. Fortum is the 9th largest heat producer in the world.

Fortum is actively investing in renewable energy and circulation.

HorsePower is a new circular economy service launched by Fortum. It is a full-service concept including delivery of bedding from sawmills to stables and collecting used bedding from stables to power plants. The service

  • solves manure problem of horse stables by utilising horse manure in an environmentally friendly way
  • Utilises byproducts of forest industry by circulating sawdust, shavings etc. to stables as bedding material

Fortum designed HorsePower to be a full service concept for the horse stables and added delivery of bedding as a service element. For horse stables the benefits are clear – they will get rid of manure and get the needed bedding with a single subscription.
