Visit Terrafame

Welcome to discover the battery chemicals production process and one of the largest battery chemicals producer! The visit begins with a general presentation of Terrafame, after which we take a tour of the vantage points of the industrial site. You can enquire about the possibility of visiting via the form found on this page.

As a rule, we will receive groups of visitors from 10 to 50 people on weekdays from 9 am to 13 pm. It is good to reserve a time of 2-3 hours for a visit. Please note that we are able to transport groups of up to 12 people in our area. The larger group will need their own bus to visit the area.

Outside the industrial site, there are no public vantage points from which to explore our operations from the road.


Your safety is the number one for us! The Terrafame employee in charge of visiting will receive guests at the main gate of Terrafame and provide you with the necessary personal protective equipment and tell you practical instructions. Visitors can move around our industrial area only in the company of a Terrafame employee responsible for visiting.

Please take into account the weather in your clothes and wear flat-soled and sturdy shoes.


Terrafame is located in Tuhkakylä in Sotkamo. Our more specific address is Malmitie 66 (see location on a map). It is about 35 kilometres from Sotkamo to Terrafame and about 41 kilometres from Kajaani. You can get there by following signs that say Terrafame and signs closer to the industrial area saying Main Gate and Passes.

The visit always starts at the main gate, where visitors receive passes. For a pass, we need the names of visitors in advance. Please be prepared to prove your identity with a driving licence or other photo ID when picking up your pass.
